- Scientific American Scientific American is a trusted source for news, articles, and videos about Einstein. The magazine has published numerous articles about the German physicist's life, work, and legacy. Examples of topics covered include a look at the scientific legacy of Einstein, the mysteries of his brain, and his influence on quantum physics. Additionally, Scientific American has published video interviews with experts discussing Einstein's life and work, as well as articles examining the impact of his theories on our understanding of the universe.

In this series, I'm discussing how ideas from calculus and precalculus (with a touch of differential equations) can predict the precession in Mercury's orbit and thus confirm Einstein's theory of general relativity. The origins of this series came from a class project that I assigned to my Differential Equations students maybe 20 years ago. We…

Mercury's perihelion precession refers to the gradual and predictable shift of the point at which Mercury is closest to the Sun in its elliptical orbit. This point, called the perihelion, slowly moves or precesses around the Sun over time. The perihelion precession is measured by the angular shift of the major axis of Mercury's elliptical…

At long last, we have reached the end of this series of posts. The derivation is elementary; I'm confident that I could have understood this derivation had I seen it when I was in high school. That said, the word "elementary" in mathematics can be a bit loaded --- this means that it is based…
