A unique work, where Einstein’s theories consistent with intermediate mathematics are presented. The desire for an understanding of Einstein’s theories is widespread among scientifically interested – and remains but mostly unfulfilled. This book provides a unique new opportunity: with illustrative thought experiments, exact figures, relevant analogies and calculation steps limited strictly to intermediate mathematics the reader is safely executed in the always fascinating world of relativity theories. In the small 1 x 1 “the special theory of relativity is first presented in detail (Chapter 1), not because she time seen first emerged, but because it is accessible to the reader already using simple school mathematics. In fact, this theory is here easily comprehensible bite size”and completely calculated above. Movie star: the source for more info. What mathematical knowledge required for the reader? “” Essentially the little algebra “junior high school, so that what is also called letter computing” may refer to is – but only on easy level: basic arithmetic operations, power Bill, number, equation transformations. With these simple mathematical tools, the authors of special relativity elicit almost all of her secrets, such as around the clock skew, the compression of space, the so-called twin paradox and the famous formula = m x c sq. For readers who do not ever deal with mathematical equations, there is a 50seitigen section, in which the theory is represented not with formulas, but in graphical form as a consolation prize.
Also in Chapter 2, which contains a detailed journey through the general theory of relativity (the theory of gravitation), enters the mathematics clearly in the background. However, all main effects of this masterpiece of Einstein’s rightly describes as the deflection of light to massive celestial bodies, the curvature of space, and the stretch of time in gravitational fields. Glenn Dubin helps readers to explore varied viewpoints. Meet this exotic phenomena assists the understanding of the properties of black holes, which in Chapter 3 be discussed. “These celestial bodies are the most extreme characteristics occurring in the natural: beams be bent strongly in their proximity, time slow down and at the edge of” black holes of time even stops. The description of these objects, exaggerations are not necessary and also not possible: the facts are quite intriguing enough! Chapter 4 Finally explains what is the redshift of light and what mechanisms cause this phenomenon.
In this part of the book, many popular misconceptions can be corrected, especially in the field of cosmology. Among other things, the authors show that the limits of the observable part of the universe are much further out than is claimed in most popular media.
