Sidelights on Relativity
This concise volume contains two addresses by Dr. Einstein outlining aspects of the theories. Ether and Relativity (1920), delivered at the University of Leyden, discusses the properties demanded of the ether of space by the theory of relativity. Geometry and Experience(1921), given at the Prussian Academy of Sciences, describes the limits within which the Euclidean or any

An exceptional historic document composed of two distinct addresses by Albert Einstein.
Firstly, recounting the stumbling of Physical Science from Newton’s theory to his own: the intrinsic relation of matter and energy; and how the influence of problems derived from Hertz’s investigations in electro-dynamics made this possible, thanks to Lorentz through Maxwell’s equations. Secondly, the fundamental question for the character of Mathematics as a valid description of reality -particularly in the f
If you want to know anything about the basics of relativity, Einstein’s pretty much the only one to read. He brings an unusual and remarkable clarity to his own work without grandstanding.
This short bit combines two lectures from the early 1920s answering some of the inherent queries on his recent work. The first deals with the idea of the “ether” which his work both discredited and, as he shows, retained in its essence. The second shows, remarkably, that you CAN envision a finite unbounded univ
it was amazing
Short but very interesting and surprisingly clear! It really brings out Einstein’s ability to explain difficult concepts in a way which pretty much confirms one of his quotes:
“If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself.”
(At least I think he really said it, you can never be sure these days.)
