Number of pages: 691
This book examines the evolution of the principle of relativity in its classical, special, and general incarnations, both from a technical and a historical perspective, with the aim of showing how it has repeatedly inspired advances in our understanding of the physical world.

What is this theory of relativity and why is it so important? The mathematics of it are too much for most of us, but we can get some notion of it by a familiar illustration. A discussion of the more intelligible features of the theory of relativity.

Notes from the lectures on Quantum Cosmology and Baby Universes. The lectures covered quantum mechanics for closed systems, generalized quantum mechanics, time in quantum mechanics, the quantum mechanics spacetime, and practical quantum cosmology.

The book offers an alternative to Einstein's special theory of relativity, with the main purpose of developing a form of relativity, which can be combined with quantum mechanics and thus can open to a unified field theory.
