Einstein's relativity theory was presented as a principled, rather than a constructive, theory. A principled theory is one that begins with principles and then uses these principles to explain the phenomena; a constructive theory starts with the observat ions and culminates in theories that explain and reconcile those observations.

A book in which one great mind explains the work of another great mind in terms comprehensible to the layman is a significant achievement. This is such a book. Max Born is a Nobel Laureate () and one of the world's great physicists: in this book he analyzes and interprets the theory of Einsteinian relativity. The result is undoubtedly the most lucid and insightful of all the books that /5(3). From the reviews: “Einstein’s Theory fits in an unusual place for introductory books on the topic. this work reaches the mathematical, theoretical, and conceptual understanding of a graduate course, assuming just basic algebraic skills. this is a rare book that can take the motivated reader with an elementary algebra background to a rigorous understanding of general relativity.

Relativity: The Special and General Theory by Albert Einstein - Free Ebook Project Gutenberg. An accesible version of Einstein’s masterpiece of theory, written by the genius himself According to Einstein himself, this book is intended “to give an exact insight into the theory of Relativity to those readers who, from a general scientific and philosophical point of view, are interested in the theory, but who are not conversant with the mathematical apparatus of theoretical physics.”.

Einstein's theory of relativity The reader is assumed to have but little mathematical knowledge. Topics covered includes: Geometry and Cosmology, The Fundamental Laws of Classical Mechanics, The Newtonian World-System, The Fundamental Laws of Optics, The Fundamental Laws of Electrodynamics and Einstein's Special Principle of Relativity.

Einstein stated that the theory of relativity belongs to a class of "principle-theories". As such, it employs an analytic method, which means that the elements of this theory are not based on hypothesis but on empirical discovery. Relativity: The Special and the General Theory began as a short paper and was eventually published as a book written by Albert Einstein with the aim of giving an exact insight into the theory of relativity to those readers who, from a general scientific and philosophical point of view, are interested in the theory, but who are not conversant with the mathematical apparatus of.

In The Einstein Theory of Relativity, Lillian Lieber presents a young person’s account of the mathematics of special and general relativity. To begin, she uses a metaphor that now has become standard a canoe crossing a river.

The Lorentz contraction is developed directly from the algebra used to explain the canoe’s position-shift. The General Theory of Relativity is a theory of gravitation developed by Einstein between andand is separate and distinct from his General Theory of Relativity, which was developed earlier.

According to General Relativity, the observed gravitational attraction between masses results from the warping of space and time by those masses. A book in which one great mind explains the work of another great mind in terms comprehensible to the layman is a significant achievement.
