John Baez and Emory Bunn have written a freakishly simple introduction to general relativity, The Meaning of Einstein’s Equation. Baez also now hosts Chris Hillman’s link site, Relativity on the World Wide Web

Did you just say “Chris Hillman” ?!?

About relativity and Einstein,

You can find better explanation than “The Meaning of Einstein’s Equation” (John Baez).

– It is directly applied to an important example (universal expansion)

– The expression is simpler (relating 1 component of the energy tensor

to 3 components of the Riemann tensor)

– The relation between energy and curvature is not only expressed but

also justified

– Both (diagonal) space and time components of the relation are

expressed and justified, resulting in showing their similarity “like a

coincidence”.
