The superficial explanation limits the reader by the historical path in which Special Relativity and General Relativity were created, and by the simplest analysis of the basics of the theory of space-time-matter.
We have shown that this results in a separation of the field equations of General Relativity into a dilatation relation and a distortion relation.
Another prediction of General Relativity is that motions of masses in the Universe should cause disturbances of space-time in the form of gravitational waves.
These detractors, near or beyond the fringe of science, often lack the mathematical knowledge needed to properly discuss general relativity in a rigorous setting.
Quantizing space-time (even using things like the Feynman path-integrals and such propagators) in (extended) General Relativity means nothing if somewhat alien procedures are merely brought (often in disguise) as part of a mere embedding procedure: space-time is epistemologically and dialectically not exactly on the same footing as quantum and classical fields, matter, and energy (while roughly sharing certain parallelism with these things); rather, it must categorically, axiomatically qualify these things.
Within the theory of general relativity, such an agreement goes by the name of a "relativistic invariant.
Nikias Stavroulakis' publications on mathematical physics and General Relativity
This study enabled them to observe precisely how dark matter evolved in the universe and to reconstruct a three-dimensional map of the dark matter and use this to test Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity.
The interval between radio pulses from the pulsar is getting about 75 millionths of a second shorter each year, almost precisely what general relativity predicts should happen as a result of the pulsar spiraling closer to its companion and shortening the period of its orbit.
Witt answers questions such as what is the difference between special and general relativity as well as what aspects of general relativity are germane to the development of Null Physics.
But, since the 1960s, following decades of controversy, most cosmologists have regarded general relativity as the best available explanation, if not the complete description, of the observed structure of the universe, including black holes.
Einstein's theory of relativity consists of two theories: general relativity (published in 1915) and special relativity (published in 1905).
