Accelerating Universe: Theory versus Experiment
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 43

Description:
We present gravitation as a theory in which the coordinates are distances and velocities between galaxies. We show that there are three possibilities for the Universe to expand: decelerating, constant and accelerating, and it is shown that the Universe is now in the latter phase.

This is an elementary introduction to the Theory of Relativity. The intended audience is a class of nonscience undergraduates. Our plan is to follow a pseudo-historical development of how we came to understand the spacetime of General Relativity.

The main goal of this document is to propose a big picture of gravitation, where Einstein's relativity arises as a natural increment to Newton's theory. It is designed for students who do not necessarily have prior knowledge about relativity.

by - E.P. Dutton & Co.
This little book gives a remarkably readable and intelligible account of the theory of relativity. The author is presenting his material without presupposing more than elementary algebra and the elements of plane geometry.
