They begin by surveying space-time transformations as a design tool for metamaterials underpinning intimate connections between Maxwell's equations and Einstein's theory of relativity, then move to practical applications in the control of radio frequency and microwaves, water waves, mechanical waves, and even heat and mass diffusion.
The first thing you should know if you read this is I know nothing about Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity -- apart from the fact that it's Einstein's theory and it has something to do with relativity.

And just at this very time, Herr Einstein travels to Paris to deliver lectures." The tension in the air was rife and Einstein was fully cognizant of the sustained efforts of his detractors, such as the Nobel laureate Philipp Lenard, an early architect of the Deutsche Physik movement, who questioned the viability of Einstein's theory of relativity derogatively calling it "Jewish physics," a work of fiction "which never was intended to be true." Einstein's somewhat cynical comment in his Paris lecture succinctly captures the cultural situation:
