От издателя

Written by the English astrophysicist, Sir Arthur Eddington (1882-1944), and originally published in 1920, ‘Space, Time and Gravitation’ outlines the general theory of relativity in astrophysics. This fascinating early work navigates Einstein’s theory through a series of perspectives – that of the experimental physicist, pure mathematician, and relativist, making it a wonderful read for the student, teacher or astrophysics enthusiast today. Contents include: Arthur Eddington; Preface; Prologue; ‘What Is Geometry?’; 1 - The Fitzgerald Contraction; 2 – Relativity; 3 - The World of Four Dimensions; 4 - Fields of force; 5 - Kinds of Space; 6 - The New Law of Gravitation and the Old Law; 7 - Weighing Light; 8 - Other Tests of the Theory; 9 - Momentum and Energy; 10 - towards infinity; 11 - Electricity and Gravitation; 12 - On The Nature of Things; Appendix; Mathematical Notes; Historical Note. This classic text is being republished in a modern and affordable edition, complete with reproductions of the original illustrations and a specially written concise biography.
