Theory of Relativity, 9780486641522 (048664152X), Dover Publications, 1981

THIRTY-FIVE years ago this article on the theory of relativity, written by me at the rather young age of 21 years for the Mathematical Encyclopedia, was first published as a separate monograph together with a preface by Sommerfeld, who as the editor of this volume of the Encyclopedia was responsible for my authorship. It was the aim of the article to give a complete review of the whole literature on relativity theory existing at that time (1921). Meanwhile, the production of textbooks, reports and papers on the theory of relativity has grown into a flood, which rose anew at the 50th Anniversary of the first papers of Einstein on relativity, in the same year 1955 ,in which all physicists were mourning his death.

In this situation any idea of completeness regarding the now existing literature in a revised new edition of the book had to be given up from the beginning. I decided therefore, in order to preserve the character of the book as an historical document, to reprint the old text in its original form, but to add a number of notes at the end of the book, which refer to certain passages of the text. These notes give to the reader selected linformation about the later developments connected with relativity the.ory and also my personal views upon some controversialrquestions.

Stream Data Management (Advances in Database Systems)
Stream Data Management (Advances in Database Systems)

Researchers in data management have recently recognized the importance of a new class of data-intensive applications that requires managing data streams, i.e., data composed of continuous, real-time sequence of items. Streaming applications pose new and interesting challenges for data management systems. Such application domains require queries...

Quantum Optics (Oxford Graduate Texts)
Quantum Optics (Oxford Graduate Texts)
Quantum optics, i.e. the interaction of individual photons with matter, began with the discoveries of Planck and Einstein, but in recent years, it has expanded beyond pure physics to become an important driving force for technological innovation. This book serves the broader readership growing out of this development by starting with an elementary...

The Legacy of Albert Einstein: A Collection of Essays in Celebration of the Year of Physics
"In this slender volume, about a dozen experts reflect succinctly on a variety of currently interesting topics, from black hole entropy in string theory to the challenge of dark energy. The book should interest primarily graduate students in physics and also some undergraduates ... is a fine reflection of the internationalism of modern science...

Gray Hat Python: Python Programming for Hackers and Reverse Engineers
Gray Hat Python: Python Programming for Hackers and Reverse Engineers

Python is fast becoming the programming language of choice for hackers, reverse engineers, and software testers because it's easy to write quickly, and it has the low-level support and libraries that make hackers happy. But until now, there has been no real manual on how to use Python for a variety of hacking tasks. You had to dig through...

The Theory of Everything: The Origin and Fate of the Universe
The Theory of Everything: The Origin and Fate of the Universe

In this series of lectures I shall try to give an outline of what we think is the history of the universe from the big bang to black holes. In the first lecture I shall briefly review past ideas about the universe and how we got to our present picture. One might call this the history of the history of the universe.

In the second...

Quantum Cryptography and Secret-Key Distillation
Quantum Cryptography and Secret-Key Distillation
This book aims at giving an introduction to the principles and techniques of quantum cryptography, including secret-key distillation, as well as some more advanced topics. As quantum cryptography is now becoming a practical reality with products available commercially, it is important to focus not only on the theory of quantum...
