Om From Newton's Laws to Einstein's Theory
This book aims to introduce to the reader the main thread of development from Newton's laws to Einstein's theory of relativity. Limited by its scope and avoiding as much as possible the use of mathematical apparatus, the authors try to clarify the most fundamental ideas and concepts. Both authors hold a deep reverence for Galileo and Einstein, and this book is dedicated to these two great scientists.Contents:From Aristotle to NewtonSpace, Time and MotionFrom the Classical Composition of Velocities to the Constant Speed of LightFrom Galileo's Principle of Relativity to the Special Theory of RelativityThe Relativity and Absoluteness of a Rod and a ClockDynamic ProblemsFrom the Leaning Tower of Pisa to the General Theory of RelativityFrom Newton to Post-NewtonFrom Classical Gravitational Collapse to the Black HoleThe Confirmation of Gravitational WavesFrom Newton's Universe to the Expanding UniverseAfter EinsteinReadership: All physicists.Key Features:A coffee-table book for the general reader curious about concepts of chaos, fractals, and nonlinear dynamic systems in everyday lifeFor art lovers, a unique full-color collection of strange attractors, iterated function systems, and Julia sets selected from computer exploration of billions of versions of only three equationsFor poetry lovers, encounters with nonlinear dynamics in nature and everyday lifeConnects four ways of understanding patterns in chaos: visual art generated from mathematical equations metaphorically connected to poems of everyday experience linked to explanation of key termsIncludes a CD of a 1,000-image slide show, 100 for printing, with 13 poems read by the poet
