On the th anniversary of Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity, Bennett's book seeks to explain both special and general relativity in a form that a nonexpert could understand. [ Book. Published in the prestigious journal Annalen der Physik on 11 May , this page document was the culmination of ten years of intensive research by Einstein to generalize his Special Theory of Relativity which he had formulated in The result was the General Theory which altered our whole understanding of modern physics.5/5(2).

There are two, theories of relativity, by Einstein, the special theory of relativity (or just special relativity, SR), and the general theory of relativity (or just general relativity, GR). The. Einstein's Theory of Special Relativity - localized behavior of objects in inertial frames of reference, generally only relevant at speeds very near the speed of light; Lorentz Transformations - the transformation equations used to calculate the coordinate changes under special relativity; Einstein's Theory of General Relativity - the more comprehensive theory, which treats .

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 /5(3). A listing of books by Einstein, is a "port" of an old project from the 's, which originally converted Einstein's relativity book into a hypertext file, in Windows "HelpFile" format ().It's now been converted .

Einstein’s theory was based on two key principles: The principle of relativity: The laws of physics don’t change, even for objects moving in inertial (constant speed) frames of reference. The principle of the speed of light: The speed of light is the same for all observers, regardless of their motion relative to.

Einstein then spent 10 years trying to include acceleration in the theory and published his theory of general relativity in In it, he determined that massive objects cause a distortion in.
