Einstein for Everyone
by John D. Norton
Publisher: Nullarbor Press 2008
The course is aimed at people who have a strong sense that what Einstein did changed everything. However they do not know enough physics to understand what he 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.

This book goes back to the work of the philosophers and astronomers of two thousand years ago; and it extends to that of Einstein, whose work laid the foundations for our present-day ideas about the nature of space itself.

In the framework of the special theory of relativity, the relativistic theory of gravitation is constructed. The energy-momentum tensor density of all the matter fields (including gravitational one) is treated as a source of the gravitational field.

Contents: The origins of the theory; Michelson-Morley experiment and the Lorentz transformation; Laws of motion and electro-magnetism; Restricted principle of relativity and some consequences; Equivalence hypothesis; Four-dimensional continuum; etc.

We may consider Geometry as a first attempt at a study of the outside world. It may be considered as a system which reflects our experiences with features of the outside world, namely features connected with the displacements of rigid bodies.
