The book is clear and well written and the bibliographic references are very : Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. Relativity and the nature of spacetime Vesselin Petkov. The most important question addressed in this book is "what is the nature (the ontological status) of spacetime?" or, equivalently, "what is the dimensionality of the world at the macroscopic level?" The answer to this question is developed via a thorough analysis of relativistic effects.

Relativity and the nature of spacetime Vesselin Petkov (auth.) The most important question that is addressed in this book is "what is the nature (the ontological status) of spacetime?" or, equivalently, "what is the dimensionality of the world at the macroscopic level?" The answer to this question is developed via a thorough analysis of. General relativity (GR), also known as the general theory of relativity (GTR), is the geometric theory of gravitation published by Albert Einstein in and the current description of gravitation in modern l relativity generalizes special relativity and refines Newton's law of universal gravitation, providing a unified description of gravity as a geometric property of space and. Then it is pointed out that there are more modern theories, such as general relativity, quantum mechanics, quantum gravity, string theory, etc., in which the question of the nature of spacetime.
