This book tracks the history of the theory of relativity through Einstein's life, with in-depth studies of its background as built upon by ideas from earlier scientists. Treading a fine line between the popular and technical (but not shying away from the occasional equation), this book explains the entire range of relativity and weaves an up-to-date biography of Einstein throughout.
The field of High Energy Physics is experiencing a strong renaissance for several reasons: one, the advent of the new Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva, along with unprecedented computing power for theoretical computations; second, new telescopes in astronomy to investigate high energy events in space.Besides existing MRW and proceedings, a coherently written and comprehensive compendium of particle physics experiments is needed that is linking them to the standard model theory and beyond.
