The most popular equation is E=mc2. I remember growing up the hype was only like 2 people in the world could understand the Theory of Relativity. I have never looked at the actual calculations behind that simple equation. How it was derived. I'm just curious if anyone here has looked at how it was derived. Is it as intense as the media leads one to think? Comming up with the theory was genius but once the trick is reveaved does someone that is pretty strong in math have any chance of understanding it? Maybe a dummies book on it :) I was a physics major and pretty decent in math but I never took courses to the limits of mathmatics. I have read some books on General relativity but they kind of dummy it down, never showing how that equation was derived.
