The Mathematical Theory of Relativity
by

Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Number of pages: 448

Description:
Sir Arthur Eddington here formulates mathematically his conception of the world of physics derived from the theory of relativity. The argument is developed in a form which throws light on the origin and significance of the great laws of physics; its consequences are followed to the full extent in the consideration of gravitation, relativity, mechanics, space-time, electromagnetic phenomena and world geometry.
