Einstein Excerpt :

NOW A MAJOR SERIES 'GENIUS' ON NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC, PRODUCED BY RON HOWARD AND STARRING GEOFFREY RUSH Einstein is the great icon of our age: the kindly refugee from oppression whose wild halo of hair, twinkling eyes, engaging humanity and extraordinary brilliance made his face a symbol and his name a synonym for genius. He was a rebel and nonconformist from boyhood days. His character, creativity and imagination were related, and they drove both his life and his science. In this marvellously clear and accessible narrative, Walter Isaacson explains how his mind worked and the mysteries of the universe that he discovered. Einstein's success came from questioning conventional wisdom and marvelling at mysteries that struck others as mundane. This led him to embrace a worldview based on respect for free spirits and free individuals. All of which helped make Einstein into a rebel but with a reverence for the harmony of nature, one with just the right blend of imagination and wisdom to transform our understanding of the universe. This new biography, the first since all of Einstein's papers have become available, is the fullest picture yet of one of the key figures of the twentieth century. This is the first full biography of Albert Einstein since all of his papers have become available -- a fully realised portrait of this extraordinary human being, and great genius. Praise for EINSTEIN by Walter Isaacson:- 'YOU REALLY MUST READ THIS.' Sunday Times 'As pithy as Einstein himself.’ New Scientist ‘[A] brilliant biography, rich with newly available archival material.’ Literary Review ‘Beautifully written, it renders the physics understandable.’ Sunday Telegraph ‘Isaacson is excellent at explaining the science.

Einstein Excerpt :

Albert Einstein (1879–1955) was the most influential physicist of the 20th century. Less well known is that fundamental philosophical problems, such as concept formation, the role of epistemology in developing and explaining the character of physical theories, and the debate between positivism and realism, played a central role in his thought as a whole. Thomas Ryckman shows that already at the beginning of his career - at a time when the twin pillars of classical physics, Newtonian mechanics and Maxwell’s electromagnetism were known to have but limited validity - Einstein sought to advance physical theory by positing certain physical principles as secure footholds. That philosophy produced his greatest triumph, the general theory of relativity, and his greatest failure, an unwillingness to accept quantum mechanics. This book shows that Einstein’s philosophy grew from a lifelong aspiration for a unified theoretical representation encompassing all physical phenomena. It also considers how Einstein’s theories of relativity and criticisms of quantum theory shaped the course of 20th-century philosophy of science. Including a chronology, glossary, chapter summaries, and suggestions for further reading, Einstein is an ideal introduction to this iconic figure in 20th-century science and philosophy. It is essential reading for students of philosophy of science, and is also suitable for those working in related areas such as physics, history of science, or intellectual history.

Einstein s Jury Excerpt :

Einstein's Jury is the dramatic story of how astronomers in Germany, England, and America competed to test Einstein's developing theory of relativity. Weaving a rich narrative based on extensive archival research, Jeffrey Crelinsten shows how these early scientific debates shaped cultural attitudes we hold today. The book examines Einstein's theory of general relativity through the eyes of astronomers, many of whom were not convinced of the legitimacy of Einstein's startling breakthrough. These were individuals with international reputations to uphold and benefactors and shareholders to please, yet few of them understood the new theory coming from the pen of Germany's up-and-coming theoretical physicist, Albert Einstein. Some tried to test his theory early in its development but got no results. Others--through toil and hardship, great expense, and perseverance--concluded that it was wrong. A tale of international competition and intrigue, Einstein's Jury brims with detail gleaned from Crelinsten's far-reaching inquiry into the history and development of relativity. Crelinsten concludes that the well-known British eclipse expedition of 1919 that made Einstein famous had less to do with the scientific acceptance of his theory than with his burgeoning public fame. It was not until the 1920s, when the center of gravity of astronomy and physics shifted from Europe to America, that the work of prestigious American observatories legitimized Einstein's work. As Crelinsten so expertly shows, the glow that now surrounds the famous scientist had its beginnings in these early debates among professional scientists working in the glare of the public spotlight.

Einstein s Tunnel Excerpt :

It is a world turned upside down a world created when a future time traveler re-directs the course of World War II. The United States has suffered six decades of oppressive fascist rule. Now, while a decimated band of expatriate American rebels fight to liberate their country, international dissension threatens a nuclear holocaust. Tony Shane-a rebel with a dangerous, incredible plan-has inherited wartime secrets that might free his country: a plan derived from Albert Einstein-whose cryptic legacy conceals an improbable time travel strategy. To unravel the secrets of "Einstein's tunnel," Shane persuades Sarah Stenstrom-a beautiful young scientist in a Nazi cyber-research laboratory-to join his cause. But their intimate relationship soon threatens the entire mission. Vito Mironi-a powerful mob boss within a corrupt Nazi regime-secretly supports the rebels. But the reality of Einstein's plan soon converts Mironi into Shane's most dangerous adversary. Joining Shane's desperate odyssey is a ruthless rebel assassin, Salom, with a burning personal agenda. But only Nathan Carothers-charismatic rebel leader-knows the true dark purpose underlying their mission. Confronted by surprising obstacles, Tony Shane traverses a perilous path-while racing a deadly doomsday clock-to fulfill the promise of Einstein's Tunnel.

Einstein s Theory of Unified Fields Excerpt :

First published in1966, here is presented a comprehensive overview of one of the most elusive scientific speculations by the pre-eminent genius of the 20th century. The theory is viewed by some scientists with deep suspicion, by others with optimism, but all agree that it represents an extreme challenge. As the author herself affirms, this work is not intended to be a complete treatise or ‘didactic exposition’ of the theory of unified fields, but rather a tool for further study, both by students and professional physicists. Dealing with all the major areas of research which together comprise the development of a working model, the author ranges over conservation equations, variational principles, solutions of spherical symmetry, and treats a wide selection of Einstein’s own equations. The final chapter indicates problems associated with the unified field theory, in particular the energy-momentum tensor and geodesics.

Summary of Allen Esterson David C Cassidy s Einstein s Wife Excerpt :

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Mileva Marić was born on December 19, 1875, in the town of Titel in the predominately Serbian province of Vojvodina on the southern border of Hungary. She was the first child of Miloš Marić and Marija Ruzić. #2 The Ottoman Empire was in decline, and Hungary began to dissolve its Military Frontier. Miloš returned to civilian life in the year of Mileva's birth. She began middle school in 1886 in Novi Sad, and her father decided that she would receive an education as far as her abilities would take her. #3 After just a year at the Serbian Girls’ School, Mileva transferred in 1887 to another middle school, the Royal Lower Secondary School in Sremska Mitrovica on the Sava River not far from her family's home in Ruma. She was determined to continue her education at a gymnasium. #4 Mileva attended the Royal Serbian Gymnasium in Šabac, Serbia, in 1890, and the Royal Croatian Gymnasium in Zagreb, Croatia, in 1892. She was admitted as a private student in 1892, and was given a stipend to attend the gymnasium.

Using Einstein s s Formula to Manifest Excerpt :

The Barkle Series Barkle #4 Using Einstein’s Formula to Manifest (Applying The Theory of Everything to Desire Fulfillment) (by Susan James) Barkle Summary In this 7 page Barkle, 6.5 pages Primary Content , (Barkle is defined by the author as a combination of Article and Book) is a perspective on how and why as more of us study, understand and apply things of a higher nature, things often dismissed as only fairy tales, but which contain higher truths, can expand us into our true natures of abundance and wealth. We become the solution to human natures mis-steps by applying ‘thoughts of fancy’. One such example is Albert Einstein’s Formula for The Theory of Everything. A familiar and often quoted metaphysical truth is ‘we make it up’. This Barkle explores how Albert Einstein simply ‘made up’ his famous theory, because he wanted to, and how we can use this same easy method for desire fulfillment. Included: ✦ How Einstein first made up his famous equation and then went about proving it; what it means to us. ✦ How Einstein ventured proving his Theory of Everything, how he made it happen and how we can use the same methods for desire fulfilment. ✦ How to use his method to affect the potential of the All- That-Is, for our own benefit. ✦ How to ‘watch’ our desires so that they manifest in the easiest quickest ways. ✦ Choice vs Pure Potential ✦ How ‘thought’ is self-acting and what it means for our desire fulfillment. ✦ Understanding what and how Einstein arrived at his conclusion frees us from limitation in our material world. ✦ An Example Using A New Car Desire Why Would Someone Choose To Read This Barkle? A quote from The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, offers an answer as to why someone may want to read this Barkle: “It’s only those who are persistent, and willing to study things deeply, who achieve The Master Work.” This is A ©BARKLE (Combination of Article/Book) Full Definition of Barkle At The End of This Barkle.

The Other Einstein Excerpt :

One of PopSugar's "25 Books You're Going to Curl Up with this Fall." "The Other Einstein takes you into Mileva's heart, mind, and study as she tries to forge a place for herself in a scientific world dominated by men."-Bustle In the tradition of The Paris Wife and Mrs. Poe, The Other Einstein offers us a window into a brilliant, fascinating woman whose light was lost in Einstein's enormous shadow. It is the story of Einstein's wife, a brilliant physicist in her own right, whose contribution to the special theory of relativity is hotly debated and may have been inspired by her own profound and very personal insight. Mitza Maric has always been a little different from other girls. Most twenty-year-olds are wives by now, not studying physics at an elite Zurich university with only male students trying to outdo her clever calculations. But Mitza is smart enough to know that, for her, math is an easier path than marriage. And then fellow student Albert Einstein takes an interest in her, and the world turns sideways. Theirs becomes a partnership of the mind and of the heart, but there might not be room for more than one genius in a marriage.
