First-class therapy of Electrodynamics and Relativity idea from a decent old standpoint. Whittaker's perspectives are suppressed simply because he was once courageous adequate to inform the reality in regards to the actual contributions of Einstein to the Relativity concept (properly attributed to Poincaré and Lorentz).

However, when we pick two rational numbers, there are infinitely many rationals between. That is why I think the set of rationals is much bigger” Lyonya tried to make another brilliant argument. “The property described here has its name – we say that the set of rational numbers is dense. However, that is not enough the enlarge the set: cardinality of rationals is the same as the cardinality of integers. ” Finally I was ready to return to the paragraph from the story: “Let us return to the story.

General relativity gives an answer – the field collects energy at high speeds and attracts the submarine, so it sinks. However, Supplee himself offered a solution in special relativity theory frame replacing gravity with an accelerated movement of the sea floor upwards – and there he managed to prove the imminent collision of the submarine and the floor based on the curvature of the floor.
