Contents: pt. 1. Pre-relativity physics Manifolds. The birth of metrical geometry. Riemann's discoveries and congruence. The problem of physical space. An alternative view of non-Euclidean geometries. Time. Systems of co-ordinates and distance. The meaning of the word relativity. The principles of relativity. Classical mechanics and the Newtonian principle of relativity. The ether. The equations of electromagnetics and Lorentz's theory. pt. 2. The special theory of relativity Einstein's special theory of relativity. Relativistic mechanics. Consequences of the new space and time measurements-simultaneity. Practical congruence in relativity. The mathematical expression of Einstein's fundamental premises. The discovery of space-time. The irreversibility of time. The reality of the contraction of lengths and the lengthening of durations. The paradoxes associated with space-time and the trip to the star. pt. 3. The general theory of relativity Potentials and forces. The postulate of equivalence. The inclusion of gravitation in the model of space-time. Tensors and the laws of nature. The principle of general covariance, or the general principle of relativity. The discovery of the Einsteinian law of gravitation. The general laws of motion. The verification of Einstein's law. The separation of space-time into space and time in a gravitational field. The principles of conservation. Other aspects of the gravitational equations. The finiteness of the universe. The importance of space-time, and the principle of action. The mystery of matter. The theories of Weyl and Eddington. pt. 4. The methodology of science The methodology of science. The general significance of the theory of relativity. Appendix The space and time graphs.
