As author Alex Duthie explains, mathematics is a pure and exact science. Although he doesn’t challenge mathematics, his new book, “It's About Time: The Illusion of Einstein’s Time Dilation Explained” (published by iUniverse), does challenge theoretical mathematics and its relationship to, and understanding of, natural phenomenon.
“It’s About Time” introduces readers to theoretical physics, but it isn’t just an introduction to the topic. Duthie goes on to challenge some of the concepts put forward by many of the leading scholars and physicists. He attended many of these scientists’ lectures and highlights some of their concepts in the book, and he includes extensive historical data – he even offers, what he calls, a history of Earth time.
“(‘It's About Time’) provides challenges to the many hypothetical concepts put forward by some of the leading theoretical physicists of today,” says Duthie, “and provides clear and plausible explanations to explain the phenomena.”
Duthie includes short biographies of physicists who have contributed significantly to the field in addition to some of the technical information about such subjects as Newton and Kepler’s laws. One of the highlights of “It’s About Time” is Duthie’s challenge to Einstein’s theories and the current thinking on time dilation, and expanding universes.
Finally, the study outlines some procedural guidelines for young physicists and suggests how academic institutions can become custodians of a central depository of reference data, facilitating future physicists into more efficient and fruitful endeavors.
