Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. The Geometry of Spacetime: InAlbert Einstein offered a revolutionary theory–special relativity–to explain some of the most troubling problems in current physics concerning electromagnetism and motion.
Soon afterwards, Hermann Minkowski recast special relativity essentially as a new geometric structure for spacetime.
These ideas are the subject of the first part of the book. The second part SpcetimeAlbert Einstein offered a revolutionary theory–special relativity–to explain some of the most troubling problems in current physics concerning electromagnetism and motion. The second part develops the callahqn implications of Einstein’s general relativity as a theory of gravity rooted in the differential geometry of surfaces.
The author explores the way an individual observer views the world and how a pair of observers collaborate to gain objective knowledge of the world.
To encompass both the general and special spacetome, he uses the geometry of spacetime as the unifying theme of the book. To read it, one needs only a first course in linear algebra and multivariable calculus and familiarity with the physical applications of calculus.

Mar 27, Saman Habibi Esfahani rated it it was amazing. Actually the majority of physics books are not accurate in deductions, but this one is one of the clearest and most accurate books on Special and General Relativity.
