It is now almost a century since Einstein's theories of Special and General Relativity revolutionized our view of the universe. Introducing Relativity plots a visually accessible course through Einstein's thought experiments that have given shape to contemporary physics. Scientists from Newton to Hawking add their unique contributions to this story. Our voyage in relativity begins at near the speed of light and proceeds to explorations of spacetime and curved spaces. We encounter Einstein's astounding vision of gravity as the curvature of spacetime and arrive at the breathtakingly beautiful field equations. Einstein's legacy is reviewed in the most advanced frontiers of physics today - black holes, gravitational waves, the accelerating universe and string theory.
Introducing Relativity provides a graphic account of Einstein's strange world. Bruce Bassett lectures in Relativity and Cosmology at the University of Portsmouth.
