Einstein's energy-momentum relation is applicable to particles of all speeds, including the particle at rest and the massless particle moving with the speed of light. If one formula or formalism is applicable to all speeds, we say it is 'Lorentz-covariant.' As for the internal space-time symmetries, there does not appear to be a clear way to approach this problem. For a particle at rest, there are three spin degrees of freedom. For a massless particle, there are helicity and gauge degrees of freedom. The aim of this book is to present one Lorentz-covariant picture of these two different space-time symmetries. Using the same mathematical tool, it is possible to give a Lorentz-covariant picture of Gell-Mann's quark model for the proton at rest and Feynman's parton model for the fast-moving proton. The mathematical formalism for these aspects of the Lorentz covariance is based on two-by-two matrices and harmonic oscillators which serve as two basic scientific languages for many different branches of physics. It is pointed out that the formalism presented in this book is applicable to various aspects of optical sciences of current interest.
Capitalize on Your Company's Intangible Assets... Leading Companies Show You How "Einstein in the Boardroom makes a great sequel to Edison in the Boardroom. Those readers who found the examples and war stories of Edison to be useful in their own IP-management activities will find the same qualities in Einstein. This resource will help anyone in the intangibles management community who seeks to go beyond intellectual property and understand and capitalize on the full range of a firm's intellectual capital." --Julie Davis, coauthor, Edison in the Boardroom "Harrison and Sullivan continue to elevate understanding of the value of intellectual assets and, more importantly, provide a 'clinic' on the practical steps necessary to turn theory into bottom-line results." --Jeff Weedman, Vice President, External Business Development The Procter & Gamble Company "Einstein in the Boardroom is a valuable guide for business managers considering how to leverage intangible assets for profit." --Joe Beyers, Vice President, Intellectual Property Licensing, Hewlett-Packard Company "Going deeper into value creation for companies, Einstein in the Boardroom describes new ways to extract value from 'I-stuff' on knowledge, a tremendous asset that is too rarely exploited and could be leveraged by all readers of this great book." --Beatrix de Russe, Executive Vice President, Licensing and Intellectual Property, Thomson "Einstein in the Boardroom is a must-read for CEOs, CFOs, and board chairs facing the financial governance issues of share price, wealth creation, and value realization. When today's financial management systems may only deal with 20 percent of the value of the firm, Harrison and Sullivan offer a look at what a company can do to successfully create and extract value from the 'other' 80 percent, and they show you how other companies have done it!" --Bill Swirsky, Vice President, Knowledge Development The Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants "Identifying, managing, and leveraging knowledge and intangible assets has enabled Cargill to differentiate itself from its competitors and increase its profitability. Harrison and Sullivan provide a clear perspective on how intangible assets fit within the corporate landscape and how to manage them to increase value for the organization." --Harry J. Gwinnell, Vice President and Chief IP Counsel, Cargill
Starting off from noneuclidean geometries, apart from the method of Einstein's equations, this book derives and describes the phenomena of gravitation and diffraction. A historical account is presented, exposing the missing link in Einstein's construction of the theory of general relativity: the uniformly rotating disc, together with his failure to realize, that the Beltrami metric of hyperbolic geometry with constant curvature describes exactly the uniform acceleration observed. This book also explores these questions: * How does time bend? * Why should gravity propagate at the speed of light? * How does the expansion function of the universe relate to the absolute constant of the noneuclidean geometries? * Why was the Sagnac effect ignored? * Can Maxwell's equations accommodate mass? * Is there an inertia due solely to polarization? * Can objects expand in elliptic geometry like they contract in hyperbolic geometry?
Have you ever wanted someone to explain the Theory of Relativity to you in a way that's honest and easy to understand? The Cults of Relativity does just that, playfully explaining parallel universes, the warping of time and how Einstein derived E=mc2. Then it blasts off into the deep unknown. From there, you'll look back to see a world where some cults gather to worship statistics, while others worship a remarkable prophecy called Cem. And your guides for this journey? Albert Einstein, Mark Twain and an impressive list of physicists, physicians, philosophers...and liars. The Cults of Relativity presents a new view of our universe and is a must-read for those wishing to explore the outer edges of science.
Click this link to read a review of Einstein, Money and Contentment. Bridging the academic and practical, Palmquist has taken what the open minded reader will view as a first step toward defining a generic "Grand Unification Theory." Objecting to the use of the word, "Theory," Palmquist refers to "Cosmo law," because he bases his work upon proven formulas controlling the behavior of electricity. His proposed answer to the long-sought-after "GUT" should interest physicists. His inter-disciplinary application of those principles to the field of everyday life should interest economists. The attention he centers upon the commonalities between the laws of nature and the nature of God should get the attention of theologians. Even skeptical scientists must fill out 1040 forms. If they take issue with Palmquist''s views of Physics and cosmology they can nevertheless grasp his reasoning that no government under today''''''''s monetary policies can be rational if it also insists upon collecting income taxes from its citizens. The formulas discussed by Palmquist are shown to be common to all of nature and can be applied to all of life. His study embraces the fields of Economics and spiritual life. Blending observations from natural law with his observations about Economics and ordinary life, Palmquist makes the case that economists should try to provide a better society for us, while we as individuals, using Cosmolaw, find contentment in whatever state life finds us.

Devils Ultimate Claim is a gripping tale about good and evil, seen from a new perspective, making the reader think on a new platform. It’s filled with clues to attain divinity, several amusing, unheard and serious historical characters uniquely adjusted with the unnoticed story of real-world in a set beyond anyone’s wildest imaginations. After getting enlightened in deep meditation, the author of this book realized that his extraordinary experience of attaining divinity explained him to understand the entirety of creation, which can be mathematically described by reversing Einstein’s theory of E=mc2. By doing so, it achieves the same climax of an ‘ultimate zero,’ which is known as the door to divinity. This excitement had some flows too. It was hard to let the scientific community notice his rarest findings. They seldom relating their findings with such an intuitive finding and scarcely promoting further research in such a contentious subject. So, the author caught a different route to bring his findings in the public domain, ~write the truth as a fiction story or making a feature film on such a touchy topic, to step up toward spreading public awareness on divinity. Only because the writer was publicly claiming to have discovered the scientific method of attaining divinity, guaranteeing secure salvation to all, the devil gets attracted and virtually hacks him in the Pentagon for liberating himself from his consequential hell-trap of WW2. While luring and forcing him to reveal this method of free salvation, ghost revealed several unknown facts about this world and beyond but in the end, on failing to know anything out from the determined author, he brutally killed him. Since it was a virtual dream, so the author awakes home with an enhanced vision and power to access and express the entire incident like a divine wish, which he dreamt of the ghost, so that this ultimate method of glimpsing divinity can come in the public domain. The Ghost of Hitler, the Pentagon, his death experience is all fictitious but the revealing on divinity, which the writer overwhelmingly claimed, is “TRUE” and, which is elaborated in such a most significant unmatching sarcasm of the modern time. What was that secret revealing which is the reverse order of Albert Einstein’s theory of E=mc2, and which paves a new field of research for its further mathematical explanation, which one can testify by glimpsing divinity in his/her lifetime? The writer has indicated its method moderately in the book, but reserved its full secret for the researchers and the Movie producers, to predominantly targeting this high-profile topic.
We all have an Einstein in us! Do you know what prevents us from being an Einstein? He used his ‘mind’ instead of being used by it. A sharp, focused, intelligent, illuminated and intuitive mind was the persona of the most influential physicist of the 20th century. Unpack Einstein’s famous equation with a different yet intriguing perspective that depicts the physics behind ‘thought energy.’ Many people are not using their minds, and if at all they do, they use it in a ‘foolish’ or ‘fuelish’ way, draining their entire energy with mundane thoughts. Happy people, successful people and inspiring people all have one thing in common: they know how to make the most of their mind’s potential, which helps them to manage and increase their energy. E=mc2 beautifully reveals the ‘many minds’ in you and coaches you with a step by step framework depicting the ‘physics of thought.’ This book beautifully correlates the ‘physics of managing and increasing energy’ and much more! Don’t Act Fuelish! Take Charge of Your Mind, and get ready to bring back the power in you. Get ready to embark on a happy, energetic and celebrated life!
From Einstein's EMC2 to Laser Particle Acceleration and Quark-Gluon Plasma
Author: Johann Rafelski
Rafelski presents Special Relativity in a language deemed accessible to students without any topical preparation - avoiding the burden of geometry, tensor calculus, and space-time symmetries – and yet advancing in highly contemporary context all the way to research frontiers. Special Relativity is presented such that nothing remains a paradox or just apparent, but rather is explained. A text of similar character, content, and scope, has not been available before. This textbook describes Special Relativity when rigid material bodies are introduced describing the reality of body contraction; it shows the relevance of acceleration and the necessary evolution of the theoretical framework when acceleration is critical. This book also presents the evolving views of Einstein about the aether. In addition to a careful and elementary introduction to relativity complete with exercises, worked examples and many discussions, this volume connects to current research topics so that readers can explore Special Relativity from the foundation to the frontier.
Do something amazing and learn a new skill thanks to the Little Ways to Live a Big Life books! The beginning of the 20th century heralded a scientific revolution: what a few brilliant minds uncovered about our reality in the first twenty years has shaped the history of our species. And one of them in particular stands out: Einstein, with his celebrated E=mc2. In this remarkable and insightful book, Christophe Galfard describes how E=mc2 is a direct consequence of the Theory of Special Relativity, the theory of how objects move and behave, at speeds close to the speed of light. He considers Einstein's legacy in the light of the 21st century, with fresh hindsight, and considers its impact on our vision of reality. The reader will discover that far from being just a formula, it is a brand new understanding of the nature of space and time. Some of the greatest scientific breakthroughs in the history of science have been made by geniuses who managed to merge and unite hitherto separated domains of knowledge. Galfard explores two unifications with Einstein's theories, and looks at the even bigger picture of how E=mc2 has changed our world, and what it entails for the future. Throughout, Galfard takes the reader on an extremely entertaining journey, using simple, jargon-free language to help the reader gain a deeper understanding of science. With humour and patience, he guides us through the world of particles, anti-matter and much more to bring us closer to an ultimate understanding of reality as we understand it today.
