Die perfekte Theorie: Das Jahrhundert der Genies und der by Pedro G. Ferreira,Norbert Juraschitz,Friedrich Pflüger

By Pedro G. Ferreira,Norbert Juraschitz,Friedrich Pflüger

Die Allgemeine Relativitätstheorie conflict und ist der größte Triumph der modernen Physik. Von dem Augenblick an, da Einstein seine Theorie im Jahr 1915 vorschlug, wurde sie mit Enthusiasmus aufgenommen, stieß jedoch ebenso auf erbitterten Widerstand. Bis heute ist sie Anlass von Fehden, ideologischen Kämpfen, aber auch fruchtbarer internationaler Zusammenarbeit.

Der Astrophysiker Pedro G. Ferreira hat die Biographie der allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie geschrieben. Sein Buch, das sich wie ein wissenschaftlicher Roman liest und ganz ohne Gleichungen und Kurven auskommt, ist eine fesselnde Erzählung der Ideen und Personen hinter Einsteins Theorie.

„Einsteins herrliche Theorie ist annähernd ein Jahrhundert alt, und sie hat seitdem ein wahres Crescendo an Entdeckungen ausgelöst. Mehr denn je ist ihr Platz heute an der vordersten Wissenschaftsfront, unverzichtbar für unser Verständnis des Universums. Pedro Ferreira beschreibt klar und unakademisch die wissenschaftlichen Durchbrüche, die von Einsteins Theorie ausgingen, und die Persönlichkeiten, die daran beteiligt waren.“
Martin Rees

„Die perfekte Lektüre.“
