Description

How has the most celebrated scientific theory of our century held up under today's exacting scrutiny of planetary probes, radio astronomy, atomic clocks, and electronic super-computers?

Clifford Will has written a lively and lucid chronicle of the triumph of one of the towering intellectual achievements of our century. This book is intended for general; students on courses in modern physics or relativity.show more
