General relativity (GR), also known as the general theory of relativity (GTR), is the geometric theory of gravitation published by Albert Einstein in and the current description of gravitation in modern l relativity generalizes special relativity and refines Newton's law of universal gravitation, providing a unified description of gravity as a geometric property of space.

Then it is pointed out that there are more modern theories, such as general relativity, quantum mechanics, quantum gravity, string theory, etc., in which the question of the nature of spacetime.

Spacetime geometry may explain why the dynamical symmetries are as they are because it is a (contingent) law of nature (a second-order law governing the first-order dynamical laws) that the two sets of symmetries match. Vesselin Petkov has 24 books on Goodreads with ratings.

Introduction. General relativity is the theory of space, time, and gravitation formulated by Einstein in It is often regarded as a very abstruse and difficult theory, partly because the new viewpoint it introduced on the nature of space and time takes some effort to get used to since it goes against some deeply ingrained, intuitive Brand: Robert M.

This is all about the geometry of spacetime, which. Chap entitled Spacetime and the Nature of Quantum Objects and based on what used to be Sects. 2 and 6. 3 in the?rst edition, explores the implications of the issue of the nature of spacetime for quantum physics, in order to see whether it can provide some insight into the nature of quantum objects.

Spacetime and Geometry: An Introduction to General Relativity by Sean Carroll is one that I've used a bit, and which goes into a slightly higher level of mathematical detail than Hartle. It introduces the basics of differential geometry and uses them to discuss the formulation of tensors, connections, and the metric (and then of course it goes.

Einstein’s Special Relativity. Related Book. As soon as you accelerate or curve — or do anything that changes the nature of the motion in any way — special relativity ceases to apply.

That’s where Einstein’s general theory of relativity comes in, because it can explain the general case of any sort of motion. About the Book Author. For physicists, spacetime is inseparable from gravity, especially in the light of Einstein's general theory of relativity. In both communities it is often said that one of the great lessons of Einstein's theory is the principle of "background independence", which advises against attributing any fixed, necessary features to spacetime.
