RELATIVITY AND ITS ROOTS by BANESH HOFFMANN

Relativity is the most important content of modern physics. A few decades ago, it was Einstein that stated the two theories of relativity: the special and the general. However, until now, not a lot of people understand what the theories mean.

In this book, by using simple examples from daily life and entertaining demonstrations, the author presents how the idea of time and space has been revolutionized. Chapter by chapter, reader will follow some basic knowledge about geometry as well as cosmology of the ancient Greek; and advanced science including the theories of Newton, Galilean mechanics and Faraday’s theories.

Along with easy to understand analogies and diagrams , this book will help readers understand more about Relative theory, even if they have no background knowledge about science or maths.
