  • Description

    The Evolution of Physics traces the progress of various ideas in physics. Written by Albert Einstein in collaboration with Leopold Infeld, the book is mainly for the lay reader to understand the growth of Physics from early concepts to relativity and quantum mechanics.

    Summary of the Book

    Einstein always asserted that objective reality has been fuelling man’s endless curiosity to know more about the world we live in. He stressed upon his realist approach to Physics on the same grounds, defending his faith in the efficacy of field theories amongst the development of quantum mechanics theories. In this book, Einstein and Infeld discuss much complex concepts in lucid language to help readers from a non-scientific background. They explain relativity and mechanics, time, distance, the time-space continuum, general relativity, ether and motion, and the reality of the field among other exhilarating concepts of Physics. This book, written by some of the best minds in history, was a huge success then, and still continues to be.

    About the Authors

    Albert Einstein, a gentleman who belongs to the elite league of Newton, Tesla and Maxwell, is considered to be the greatest scientist of the 20th century. Born in Germany, Einstein worked as a clerk in the patent office before revolutionizing the world of physics with his incredible achievements. He gave the world, two of the most brilliant concepts of physics through his theories of relativity. He won the Nobel Prize for Physics for his work on Photoelectric Effect, which eventually became the foundation stone for tremendous developments in electronic technologies and quantum theory. Einstein is not only celebrated as the greatest physicist of all the time but he is also remembered as a humane, humourist and philosopher. World War II and the presence of Adolf Hitler in Germany forced him to stay in the US during the period, where he consistently tried hard to warn and evade the application of nuclear fission as a weapon of mass destruction. He collaborated and interacted with many extraordinary minds of his time contributing to the world of physics and humanity as a whole. His unmatched intellectual imagination, along with his immense interest in music, philosophy and humanity makes him the greatest personality that mankind has ever seen.

    Leopold Infeld was a Polish physicist. He worked in Cambridge and Princeton Universities among other places, donning various roles. He is best known for Born-Infeld theory and the Einstein-Infeld-Hoffmann equations.

    Lucid and informative.

    Many of us keep looking for easier explanations of higher physics. This book is a fantastic help on that area with the following fantastic points:

    1. This is one book that was very carefully 'designed' and designed by some real genius who understood the content probably best in the world. The clarity of intention and understanding makes this book a perfect content
    2. The authors paid utmost importance to simplicity and accuracy. What's written is what it 'is'. The book keeps on building trus...

    Straight from the Horse's mouth!

    Reading about how Physics has evolved over the centuries doesn't get better than this. (A slightly dated alternative would be James Jeans' "The Growth of Physical Science" which is magnificent in its own right.) Co-authored by Einstein and Infeld, this book covers mechanics, field theory, and elementary quantum physics. The writing is concise, elegant and, quite obviously, highly informative. A must have for avid physics fans!

    a very good explanation of devolopment of physics from classical to modern.

    it provides a good and clear explanation of mechanics and electro magnetic radiation.
    this book is the collaboration of the author leopold infeld along with einstein which represents the ideas of both the pioneers.

    evolutiom

    good book for those who are looking for all the physics bold strokes in a single book from basics to the quantum ,from simple to complex,phenomenon that can be observed around us can be understood through this book..fantastic book.............don't worry just take it and enjoy it ,it might be felt boring at first instance but no doubt a good book and also a book to be co-related with the lexicon of visible and invisible universe.
