The Theory of Space, Time, and Gravitation, 2nd Revised Edition focuses on Relativity Theory and Einstein's Theory of Gravitation and correction of the misinterpretation of the Einsteinian Gravitation Theory. The book first offers information on the theory of . Apr 05, · Plumian Professor of Astronomy and Experimental. CAMBRIDGE AT THE UNIVERSITY PRESS Cambridge University Press. C. F. Clay, Manager. London: Fetter Lane, E.C. 4.

Black holes and the geometry of spacetime also receive consideration. This book is comprised of 10 chapters; the first of which briefly reviews special relativity, with the emphasis on the Lorentz covariance of the equations of physics. This topic is then followed by a short discussion on accelerations in the framework of special relativity. This landmark text offers a rigorous full-year graduate level course on gravitation physics, teaching students to:• Grasp the laws of physics in flat spacetime• Predict orders of magnitude• Calculate using the principal tools of modern geometry• Predict all levels of precision• Understand Einstein's geometric framework for physics• Explore applications, including pulsars and /5(5).

He believed Einstein's creation to be a beautiful geometrical theory which should be at least qualitatively understood by everyone. The result of this belief was "Space, Time and Gravitation" which was written for the intelligent educated lay person. The book is well written and insightful and I heartily recommend it/5(3).

This book has connections and may me considered as a sort of introduction to other books by the author: Spacetime Physics and Exploring Black Holes (with Edwin Taylor, being a pair of books that give an introduction to Relativity, special and general respectively, but using only algebra and simple calculus) and Gravitation (with Kip Thorne and Cited by: We cannot guarantee that Gravitation And Spacetime book is in the library, But if You are still not sure with the service, you can choose FREE Trial service.

READ as many books as you like (Personal use). Wheeler writes that gravity "is not a foreign and physical force transmitted through space." Rather, and following Einstein, gravity is the product of "curved spacetime geometry" that "grasps mass, telling it how to move" so that mass follows the contours of space/5.
