In this work the theory of gravitation in flat space-time is summarized. Most of the results of the theory of gravitation in flat space-time are compared with those of general relativity. We only give a small part of the experimental results.

A book for the inquisitive reader who wishes to understand the main ideas of special and general theory of relativity. Only a modest understanding of high school mathematics is required. A formal account of special relativity is given in an appendix.

Aimed at people who do not know enough physics to understand what Einstein did and why it was so important. The course presents just enough of Einstein's physics to give students an independent sense of what he achieved and what he did not achieve.

Concise and practical, this text sketches the mathematical background essential to understanding the fundamentals of relativity theory. Subjects include the velocity of light, measurement of time and distance, and properties of mass and momentum.
