Item Picture
written by Leonard Zane
This book introduces the basic concepts of special and general relativity. The space and time introduced by Albert Einstein in 1905 is explained by examining a series of simple thought or "gedanken" experiments.  The development makes extensive use of spacetime diagrams to help readers appreciate the full extent of these changes.
