Gravity, Black Holes, and the Very Early Universe : An Introduction to General Relativity and Cosmology Hardback
by Tai L. Chow
Here it is, in a nutshell: the history of one genius's most crucial work - discoveries that were to change the face of modern physics.
In the early 1900s, Albert Einstein formulated two theories that would forever change the landscape of physics: the Special Theory of Relativity and the General Theory of Relativity.
Respected American academic Professor Tai Chow tells us the story of these discoveries.
He details the basic ideas of Einstein, including his law of gravitation.
Deftly employing his inimitable writing style, he goes on to explain the physics behind black holes, weaving into his account an explanation of the structure of the universe and the science of cosmology.
