Starthilfe Relativitatstheorie: Ein neuer Einstieg in by Helmut Günther

By Helmut Günther

Kann guy die Spezielle Relativitatstheorie ebenso begreifen wie das Funktionieren eines Fahrrades oder eines automobiles? Die Relativitatstheorie wurde durch einen Geniestreich von Albert Einstein aus der Taufe gehoben, um damit ein ganzes Gebirge von Problemen auf einmal zu uberwinden. Aber der Leser dieser Vieweg+Teubner-Starthilfe muss nicht den Weg uber die Steilwand nehmen. Das Buch ermoglicht vielmehr ein wirkliches Verstehen der Relativitatstheorie, ohne gleich das komplette Instrumentarium der theoretischen Physik auf den Plan zu rufen. Einsteins Prinzip von der universellen Konstanz der Lichtgeschwindigkeit nahert sich diese Einfuhrung in kleinen Schritten: weniger abstrakt als in den herkommlichen Darstellungen, aber nicht weniger exakt.
