By Tai L. Chow

Here it truly is, in a nutshell: the historical past of 1 genius’s most vital paintings – discoveries that have been to alter the face of recent physics. within the early 1900s, Albert Einstein formulated theories that may ceaselessly switch the panorama of physics: the unique idea of Relativity and the overall thought of Relativity. revered American educational Professor Tai Chow tells us the tale of those discoveries. He info the fundamental rules of Einstein, together with his legislations of gravitation. Deftly utilising his inimitable writing kind, he is going directly to clarify the physics in the back of black holes, weaving into his account a proof of the constitution of the universe and the technological know-how of cosmology.
