Feynman R.P., Leighton R.B., Sands M. Six Not-So-Easy Pieces: Einstein's Relativity, Symmetry, and Space-Time
New York, Basic Books, 2011, 185 p., 4 edition. Six lectures, all regarding the most revolutionary discovery in twentieth-century physics: Einstein's Theory of Relativity. No one-not even Einstein himself-explained these difficult, anti-intuitive concepts more clearly, or with more verve and gusto, than Feynman.

Cambridge University Press, 2010, 309 p. The theory of relativity describes the laws of physics in a given space-time. However, a physical theory must provide observational predictions expressed in terms of measurements, which are the outcome of practical experiments and observations. Ideal for researchers with a mathematical background and a basic knowledge of relativity, this book will help in the understanding of the physics behind the mathema...

Cambridge University Press, 2009, 525 pages Einstein's theory of general relativity is a theory of gravity and, as in the earlier Newtonian theory, much can be learned about the character of gravitation and its effects by investigating particular idealized examples. This book describes the basic solutions of Einstein's equations with a particular emphasis on what they mean, both geometrically and physically. New concepts, such as big bang and b...

Cambridge University Press, 1989, 192 p. Naber provides an elementary introduction to the geometrical methods and notions used in special and general relativity. Particular emphasis is placed on the ideas concerned with the structure of space-time and that play a role in the Penrose-Hawking singularity theorems. The author's primary purpose is to give a rigorous proof of the simplest of these theorems, by the one that is representative of the who...

World Scientific Publishing Company, 1999, 209 pages Einstein endorsed the view of Kaluza that gravity could be combined with electromagnetism if the dimensionality of the world is extended from 4 to 5. Klein applied this idea to quantum theory, laying a basis for the various modern versions of string theory. Recently, work by a group of researchers has resulted in a coherent formulation of 5D relativity, in which matter in 4D is induced by geo...
