Small book cover: Space, Time and Gravitation: An Outline of the General Relativity Theory

Space, Time and Gravitation: An Outline of the General Relativity Theory
by

Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Number of pages: 219

Description:
The author gives an account of general relativity theory without introducing anything very technical in the way of mathematics, physics, or philosophy. Although primarily designed for readers without technical knowledge of the subject, it is hoped that the book may also appeal to those who have gone into the subject more deeply.
