9780199694037: A Student's Guide to Einstein's Major Papers

Our understanding of the physical universe underwent a revolution in the early twentieth century - evolving from the classical physics of Newton, Galileo, and Maxwell to the modern physics of relativity and quantum mechanics.

The dominant figure in this revolutionary change was Albert Einstein. In a single year, 1905, Einstein produced breakthrough works in three areas of physics: on the size and the effects of atoms; on the quantization of the electromagnetic field; and on the special theory of relativity. In 1916 he produced a fourth breakthrough work, the general theory of relativity.

A Student's Guide to Einstein's Major Papers focuses on Einstein's contributions, setting his major works into their historical context, and then takes the reader through the details of each paper, including the mathematics.

This book helps the reader appreciate the simplicity and insightfulness of Einstein's ideas and how revolutionary his work was, and locate it in the evolution of scientific thought begun by the ancient Greek natural philosophers.

Recensione:

... each of us contemporary physicists has at some point in our careers setout to tread the arduous path toward mastery of Albert Einsteins great pioneering insights. Robert Kennedy offers to illumine that path as a guide/companion in this work. His contribution deserves commendation and recommendation for dedicated study. ( Eric Sheldon, Contemporary Science)

Kennedys book is a splendid contribution to guiding students and scholars to an appreciation of Einsteins Major Papers. It promotes insight into these majestic masterworks. ( Contemporary Physics)

Recommended in the Times Higher Education's Textbook Guide 2012 ( Donny Harwood, Times Higher Education)

L'autore:

Dr. Kennedy received his Ph.D. in physics from the University of Notre Dame in 1966, and since 1966 has been a professor in the Department of Physics at Creighton University. Dr. Kennedy has taught physics at Creighton University for over forty years, and has developed a number of courses based on the works of Albert Einstein, beginning in the 1970s with a request from the college to develop a "non-threatening" science course for the non-science majors. In 2008 Creighton University awarded to Dr. Kennedy the designation of Professor Emeritus and of Dean Emeritus.
