geared toward either physics scholars and non-science majors, this particular ebook explains Einstein's distinctive concept of relativity pictorially, utilizing diagrams instead of equations. The diagrams consultant the reader, step by step, from the fundamentals of relativity to complex issues together with the addition of velocities, Lorentz contraction, time dilation, the dual paradox, Doppler shift, and Einstein's recognized equation E=mc². The precise figures in the course of the booklet allow the reader to imagine the speculation in a fashion that can't be totally conveyed via equations on my own. The illustrative reasons during this ebook retain the common sense and rigour precious for physics scholars, but are uncomplicated adequate to be understood by way of non-scientists. The e-book additionally includes pleasing difficulties which problem the reader's realizing of the fabrics covered.

The 2011 Nobel Prize in Physics was once offered for the invention of cosmic acceleration because of darkish power, a discovery that's the entire extra puzzling as not anyone is aware what darkish strength truly is. We positioned the trendy proposal of cosmological vacuum strength into historic context and convey the way it grew out of disparate roots in quantum mechanics (zero-point strength) and relativity conception (the cosmological consistent, Einstein's “greatest blunder”).
