Einstein Relatively Easy

Pin It

In this short volume, Professor Richard P. Feynman delves into Einstein's special relativity. That's a very entertaining and scintillating book that i would advise anyone to read!

Chapter 3 is dedicated to a general introduction to special Relativity and to Lorentz transformations

Chapter 4 introduces the notion of relativistic energy

Chapter 5 describes the spacetime notion

And finally Chapter 6 takes the curvature of spacetime as principal study object.







"The essence of my theory is precisely that no independent properties are attributed to space on its own. It can be put jokingly this way. If I allow all things to vanish from the world, then following Newton, the Galilean inertial space remains; following my interpretation, however, nothing remains.."
Letter from A.Einstein to Karl Schwarzschild - Berlin, 9 January 1916

"Quantum mechanics is certainly imposing. But an inner voice tells me that it is not yet the real thing. The theory says a lot, but does not really bring us any closer to the secret of the 'old one'. I, at any rate, am convinced that He is not playing at dice."
Einstein to Max Born, letter 52, 4th december 1926
