As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality - Einstein - 1921
Purpose of this Website
Hello. My name is Pete. I have an interest in physics as well as other branches of science. I created this web page during the time I first started discussing physics online. I found it very difficult to discuss certain topics precisely since the language of physics is mathematics and sending math symbols over the internet in e-mail and newsgroups can't be done to date except in a few simple cases. So I started to write web pages with the math and diagrams that I needed and e-mailed the URL to the person I was discussing something with. The number of pages grew and grew and I decided to organize them into the web-site that you're currently reading.
Articles I Wrote: These are non-published articles on special and general relativity that I wrote and placed on this web page. They were all reviewed by relativists who are well known in their field.
Abstract List of Journal Articles - Abstracts from a select set of articles of interest in special relativity, general relativity quantum mechanics etc. If you see an article you'd like to read then e-mail me and I will e-mail the article to you in PDF format.
Area 51 - Is all the nonsense about this base a result of fraud?
Religion - Various topics about religion.
Favorite Quotes - My favorite quotes from Eddington, Einstein, etc.
Philosophical Concepts - Quotes from Einstein regarding physical concepts.
Mass Articles - A list of articles on the concept of mass in relativity.
Relativistic Mass - A list of quotations from relativity text books and links to articles which discuss/utilize relativistic mass.
Falling Charge - A list of papers that discusses the relattivistic phenomena of a charged particle in free-fall ad at rest in a gravitational field.
What is Science - The following statement was originally drafted by the Panel on Public Affairs (POPA) of the American Physical Society, in an attempt to meet the perceived need for a very short statement that would differentiate science from pseudoscience. Am. J. Phys. 67 (8), August 1999
