At the crossroads of physics and neuroscience, this unique book offers a new approach to brain function based on Einstein's work on relativity and the cosmological constant. "The book goes back and forth between what we know about these two universes, the cosmos and our brain, their energy and their matter, be it black, grey or white. It alternates between the fundamental questions of contemporary physics and cosmology, and our knowledge of the functioning of the brain based in particular on the revelations of neuroimaging." D. L. B. The revolutionary hypothesis of a relativistic brain space-time sheds new light on our perception of the world, on our consciousness, on our social interactions and on mental illness. A masterful, daring book that invites us to a journey in thought, from the confines of the universe to the depths of the brain. Author of the best-selling book Le Cerveau de cristal (2012), Denis Le Bihan, a physician and a physicist, is a member of the French Academy of Sciences and of the National Academy of Medicine. He founded and directed NeuroSpin, and has received numerous prestigious international awards for his work in neuroimaging. On the cover: the letter represents the cosmological constant, Einstein's error, while the two brains, with their clocks, can be seen as two mental states of the same person or as two people interacting, within the framework of a relativistic brain space-time.
Philosophers and Einstein's Relativity by Chiara Russo Krauss,Luigi Laino Pdf
This book offers an up-to-date insight into the early philosophical debate on Einsteinian relativity. The essays explore the reception and interpretation of Einstein’s ideas by some of the most important philosophical schools of the time, such as logical positivism (Reichenbach), neo-Kantianism (Cassirer, Natorp), critical realism (Sellars), and radical empiricism (Mach). The book is aimed at physicists and historians of science researching the epistemological implications of the theory of relativity, as well as to scholars in philosophy interested in understanding how leading philosophical figures of the early twentieth century reacted to the relativistic revolution.
It is a world turned upside down a world created when a future time traveler re-directs the course of World War II. The United States has suffered six decades of oppressive fascist rule. Now, while a decimated band of expatriate American rebels fight to liberate their country, international dissension threatens a nuclear holocaust. Tony Shane-a rebel with a dangerous, incredible plan-has inherited wartime secrets that might free his country: a plan derived from Albert Einstein-whose cryptic legacy conceals an improbable time travel strategy. To unravel the secrets of "Einstein's tunnel," Shane persuades Sarah Stenstrom-a beautiful young scientist in a Nazi cyber-research laboratory-to join his cause. But their intimate relationship soon threatens the entire mission. Vito Mironi-a powerful mob boss within a corrupt Nazi regime-secretly supports the rebels. But the reality of Einstein's plan soon converts Mironi into Shane's most dangerous adversary. Joining Shane's desperate odyssey is a ruthless rebel assassin, Salom, with a burning personal agenda. But only Nathan Carothers-charismatic rebel leader-knows the true dark purpose underlying their mission. Confronted by surprising obstacles, Tony Shane traverses a perilous path-while racing a deadly doomsday clock-to fulfill the promise of Einstein's Tunnel.
Einstein's Jury is the dramatic story of how astronomers in Germany, England, and America competed to test Einstein's developing theory of relativity. Weaving a rich narrative based on extensive archival research, Jeffrey Crelinsten shows how these early scientific debates shaped cultural attitudes we hold today. The book examines Einstein's theory of general relativity through the eyes of astronomers, many of whom were not convinced of the legitimacy of Einstein's startling breakthrough. These were individuals with international reputations to uphold and benefactors and shareholders to please, yet few of them understood the new theory coming from the pen of Germany's up-and-coming theoretical physicist, Albert Einstein. Some tried to test his theory early in its development but got no results. Others--through toil and hardship, great expense, and perseverance--concluded that it was wrong. A tale of international competition and intrigue, Einstein's Jury brims with detail gleaned from Crelinsten's far-reaching inquiry into the history and development of relativity. Crelinsten concludes that the well-known British eclipse expedition of 1919 that made Einstein famous had less to do with the scientific acceptance of his theory than with his burgeoning public fame. It was not until the 1920s, when the center of gravity of astronomy and physics shifted from Europe to America, that the work of prestigious American observatories legitimized Einstein's work. As Crelinsten so expertly shows, the glow that now surrounds the famous scientist had its beginnings in these early debates among professional scientists working in the glare of the public spotlight.
A Nobel Laureate relates the fascinating story of Einstein and relativity theory in well-illustrated, nontechnical terms, discussing the meaning of time, gravity and its effect on light, the curving of space-time, more.
REFUTING EINSTEIN’S SPECIAL RELATIVITY THEORY (SRT) SYSTEMATICALLY by LIU KEDIAN Pdf
The purpose of this book is to refute Einstein’s Special Relativity Theory (and GRT) systematically that should have been done by scientists much earlier. Chapter One and Two have a briefing of main assertions of Special Relativity Theory (SRT) and raise questions and list out the inconsistent of SRT with basic laws and realities of physics. The following chapters reveal and refute the fundamental mistakes and flaws of every assertion of SRT one by one in details. The time dilation assertion of SRT is refuted systematically based on wave-particle duality of light in Chapter Three and Chapter Four. In Chapter Five and Chapter Six, the inconsistent of Doppler Effect of SRT are revealed and clarified based on physical reality and functionality. Einstein’s Lorentz transformation is refuted theoretically and practically in Chapter Seven and Eight firstly by clarifying that the light pulse must be lasting a delta time ?t > 0, then the moving frame X’ is no more the light source so that the basic formula x’= ct’ is wrong fundamentally. Some points of Michelson-Morley experiment are clarified in Chapter Nine. Main deductions and conclusions of SRT are refuted in Chapter Ten. Existence of ether as medium of light wave is verified theoretically and practically in Chapter Eleven. GRT is falsified in Chapter Twelve based on re-discovering and re-clarifying some properties of light and EM wave.
Einstein's Theory of Unified Fields by Marie Antoinette Tonnelat Pdf
First published in1966, here is presented a comprehensive overview of one of the most elusive scientific speculations by the pre-eminent genius of the 20th century. The theory is viewed by some scientists with deep suspicion, by others with optimism, but all agree that it represents an extreme challenge. As the author herself affirms, this work is not intended to be a complete treatise or ‘didactic exposition’ of the theory of unified fields, but rather a tool for further study, both by students and professional physicists. Dealing with all the major areas of research which together comprise the development of a working model, the author ranges over conservation equations, variational principles, solutions of spherical symmetry, and treats a wide selection of Einstein’s own equations. The final chapter indicates problems associated with the unified field theory, in particular the energy-momentum tensor and geodesics.
Summary of Allen Esterson & David C. Cassidy's Einstein's Wife by Everest Media, Pdf
Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Mileva Marić was born on December 19, 1875, in the town of Titel in the predominately Serbian province of Vojvodina on the southern border of Hungary. She was the first child of Miloš Marić and Marija Ruzić. #2 The Ottoman Empire was in decline, and Hungary began to dissolve its Military Frontier. Miloš returned to civilian life in the year of Mileva's birth. She began middle school in 1886 in Novi Sad, and her father decided that she would receive an education as far as her abilities would take her. #3 After just a year at the Serbian Girls’ School, Mileva transferred in 1887 to another middle school, the Royal Lower Secondary School in Sremska Mitrovica on the Sava River not far from her family's home in Ruma. She was determined to continue her education at a gymnasium. #4 Mileva attended the Royal Serbian Gymnasium in Šabac, Serbia, in 1890, and the Royal Croatian Gymnasium in Zagreb, Croatia, in 1892. She was admitted as a private student in 1892, and was given a stipend to attend the gymnasium.
'Einstein's Generation' offers a new approach to the origins of modern physics by exploring both the material culture that stimulated relativity and the reaction of Einstein's colleagues to his pioneering work.
Amusing, irreverent, sophisticated and highly accessible, Einstein for Beginners is the perfect introduction to Einstein's life and thought. Reaching back as far as Babylon (for the origins of mathematics) and the Etruscans (who thought they could handle lightning), this book takes us through the revolutions in electrical communications and technology that made the theory of relativity possible. In the process, we meet scientific luminaries and personalities of imperial Germany, as well as Galileo, Faraday, and Newton; learn why moving clocks run slower than stationary ones, why nothing can go faster than the speed of light; and follow Albert's thought as he works his way toward E = mc2, the most famous equation of the twentieth century.
This is an expansion of the author's 1991 work which investigates the implications of Gödel's writings on Einstein's theory of relativity as they relate to the fundamental questions of the nature of time and the possibilities for time travel.
