    Relativity, and Complex Spacetime Gerald Kaiser. 35, 3, 41 or Reflections on Relativity on-line book by Kevin Brown. Spirituality may refer to almost any kind of meaningful activity, personal growth, or blissful experience. Traditionally, spirituality refers to a process of re-formation of the personality but there is no precise definition of spirituality.

    Spacetime Physics with Geometric Algebra 1 David Hestenes Department of Physics and Astronomy Arizona State University, Tempe, Arizona This is an introduction to spacetime algebra(STA) as a unified mathematical language for physics. STA simplifies, extends and integrates the mathemat-.   and discovered to be useful in all physics in which space-time can be considered flat enough that the full mechanism of the general theory is not necessary. The author of "Reflections on relativity" is certainly not in Sue's camp. The bottom of the page linked by Sue contains a link to the table of contents of the book.

    Reflections on a Surprising Universe takes the reader beyond the headlines of the latest scientific breakthroughs, translating complicated topics into an understandable narrative. It covers a wide array of scientific developments in clear and concise language sharing a sense of wonder felt by the author about the universe we find ourselves in. Reflection Law of reflection: The angle of incidence equals the angle of reflection (θ i = θ r). The law of reflection can be derived from the principle of least action. Types of reflection Regular reflection or spectral reflection. Incident rays of light are reflected in one direction according to the law of reflection.

• R. Wald, General Relativity (Chicago, ) [***]. Thorough discussions of a number of advanced topics, including black holes, global structure, and spinors.

The approach is more mathematically demanding than the previous books, and the basics are covered pretty quickly. • E. Taylor and J. Wheeler, Spacetime Physics (Freeman, ) [*].Cited by: Callender covers a wide range of facets — clocks, psychological time, entropy, spacetime curvature, the Big Bang, Gödel, endocrinology, and just about everything in between — to deliver a sum total of illumination that will leave you with newfound awe for the intersection of philosophy and science.

This entirely depends on what you know already: what is basic to you. If you are ready for tensors, read Gravitation. If you are ready for deeper mathematics, read The Large Scale Structure of Space-Time.

The theory of relativity is tackled directly in this book, dispensing with the need to establish the insufficiency of Newtonian mechanics.

This book takes advantage from the start of the geometrical nature of the relativity theory. The reader is assumed to be familiar with vector calculus in ordinary three-dimensional Euclidean space.

Earman. A new semantics for the epistemology of geometry. With general relativity, spacetime became a dynamical variable, curving in response to mass and energy.

Contemporary developments in theoretical physics suggest that another revolution may be in progress, through which a new source of “fuzziness” may enter physics, and spacetime itself may be reinterpreted as an approximate, derived concept Cited by: Reflections on Relativity.
