These are simple laws of symmetries! It may be that small scale Lorentz invariance . For a good intro to relativity - both special relativity (SR) and general relativity (GR) - try "A Most Incomprehensible Thing: Notes Towards a Very Gentle Introduction to the Mathematics of Relativity," by Peter Collier. Jan 1, 2009 - In general relativity, it is assumed that spacetime is curved by the presence of matter (energy), this curvature being represented by the Riemann tensor. From that, he constructed one of mankind's .. In special relativity, the Riemann tensor is identically zero, and so this concept of Many spacetime continua have physical interpretations which most physicists would consider bizarre or unsettling. He really takes you from scratch You won't be an expert just from reading this book, but you'll get a good grounding in some of the concepts - how gravity shapes space-time, how time dilation differs between SR and GR, etc. Mar 31, 2014 - It unifies quantum mechanics and special theory of relativity in a consistent way and it has been proven to be an extremely successful theory in countless number of cases. If there is a more fundamental description of physics where space-time and perhaps even the usual formulation of quantum mechanics don't appear, then even in the limit where non-perturbative gravitational effects can be .. Oct 14, 2012 - All of Einstein's special relativity theory is based on these three extremely simple principles of physics: Invariance of light speed, relativity principle and isotropy and homogeneity of space and time. Jul 9, 2011 - Nonetheless, theorists hope to unify the current schism between large scale general relativity and small scale quantum physics by establishing an evidence-based theory of quantum gravity. The spacetime physics that is classical indicates a Copenhagen-like correspondence, and I think that underlying quantum physics for gravity involves SL(2,H) symmetries, where H is the quaterions. The way Levy-Leblond presents this would be my preferred way to introduce a student to the subject. You must log in to comment this article.
