Space and Time in the Modern Universe

Published Jan 1977

This book is a beginners guide to the theory of relativity, with its outlandish predictions such as spacewarps and timewarps, black holes and a universe erupting from nothing. This is a relatively easy way to learn new physics, including advanced material usually omitted from all but the most specialist mathematical treatments. Difficult concepts are explained in the earlier chapters, so paving the way to understanding the later advanced work. The book will appeal to undergraduate scientists and non-scientists at universities, as well as to any reader with a scientific or philosophical bent who is intrigued by such questions as: What happened before the big bang? What happens at the centre of a black hole? Can time be reversed? and many more.
