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. In , Einstein published his theory of general relativity. In it he pro-vided a new theory of gravitation that included Newton’s theory as a spe-cial case. Experimental confirmation of this theory in brought Ein-stein world fame. His earlier theory of is now called the theory of special relativity, since it excluded accelerations.

General relativity (GR), also known as the general theory of relativity (GTR), is the geometric theory of gravitation published by Albert Einstein in and the current description of gravitation in modern l relativity generalizes special relativity and refines Newton's law of universal gravitation, providing a unified description of gravity as a geometric property of space and.

What a book! What a theory! Hats off to Einstein for giving us the general theory of relativity. This theory is the base of modern physics. Without this, the whole world would stoo working. This book explains this theory very well without going too deep. So normal people can understand/5(). Albert Einstein (–) was a renowned theoretical physicist of the 20th century, best known for his theories of special relativity and general also made important contributions to statistical mechanics, especially his treatment of Brownian motion, his resolution of the paradox of specific heats, and his connection of fluctuations and dissipation.
