About this product Product Information Since the publication of Einstein's "Special Theory of Relativity" in , the discovery of such astronomical phenomena as quasars, pulsars, and black holes -- all intimately connected to relativity -- has provoked a tremendous upsurge of interest in the subject.
This volume, a revised version of Martin Gardner's earlier "Relativity for the Million, "brings this fascinating topic up to date. Witty, perceptive, and easily accessible to the general reader, it is one of the clearest and most entertaining introductions to relativity ever written. Gardner offers lucid explanations of not only the special and general theories of relativity, but of the Michelson-Morley experiment, gravity and spacetime, Mach's principle, the twin paradox, models of the universe, and other topics.

Relativity Simply Explained by Martin Gardner (, Paperback, Reprint) for sale online | eBay
The following 6 books deal with modern topics in mostly classical statistical mechanics, namely, the central notions of linear response theory Forster and critical phenomena the rest at level suitable for beginning graduate students. These are books that are sort of talky and fun to read but still substantial - some harder than others.
These include things mathematicians can read about physics as well as vice versa. These books are different than the "bibles" one must have on hand at all times to do mathematical physics. Mathematical Physics By: Donald H. Book Reg. Product Description Product Details This is a thorough treatment in one volume of the mathematical techniques vital in classical mechanics, electromagnetic theory, quantum theory, and relativity.
Relativity Simply Explained
Designed for junior, senior, and graduate courses in mathematical physics, it presents full explanations of function theory, vectors, matrices, dyadics, tensors, partial differential equations, and other advanced mathematical techniques in their logical order during the presentation of the various physical theories. The completeness of the derivations makes the book especially useful for self-study.
Several topics seldom presented, such as electron theory and relativity, appear in considerable detail, because an understanding of them is increasingly vital to the student of atomic physics. But the author's treatment of his chosen subjects in classical physics is no way slighted, and his book has proved valuable to students in all fields of physics.
