Download Das Relativitätsprinzip: Eine Sammlung von Abhandlungen by Wolfgang Trageser (eds.) PDF

By Wolfgang Trageser (eds.)

Das vorliegende Buch bietet eine klassische, immer noch aktuelle Einführung in die Probleme und die Entwicklung der Relativitätstheorie anhand von Originalarbeiten. Der a hundred. Geburtstag der Allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie im November 2015 dient nun als Anlass zur Herausgabe der um neun weitere Artikel ergänzten Neuauflage dieses Klassikers.

Das Werk „Das Relativitätsprinzip“ wurde erstmals 1913 von dem Mathematiker Otto Blumenthal herausgegeben. Das Buch erlebte mehrere Auflagen und umfasste die wesentlichen Arbeiten zur Relativitätstheorie bis zum Jahr 1923. Die Absicht ist es, den Gedankengang Albert Einsteins von der Speziellen Relativitätstheorie, über die Allgemeine Relativitätstheorie, bis hin zu Einsteins Versuch einer Einheitlichen Feldtheorie von Elektromagnetismus und Gravitation, darzustellen. Das Buch liefert somit nicht nur dem an der Entwicklung der Relativitätstheorie interessierten Physiker und Mathematiker, sondern auch dem an Physik, Mathematik und deren historische Entwicklung interessierten Laien eine wertvolle Quellensammlung.
