Jan 02, · An outstanding and highly mathematical treatment of general relativity. A little out of date in some places and almost definitely not for undergraduates.

For an advanced undergraduate's first exposure to General Relativity, Sean Carroll's book is likely the best choice/5(58).

Oct 07, · "Gravitation is a classic."--David Spergel, Princeton University "Gravitation is the encyclopedic, definitive exposition of general relativity as of Any serious researcher of general relativity will want to have this book at hand."/5().

Non-commutative geometry and gravitation ; Experimental gravity, in particular tests of general relativity ; Papers submitted to General Relativity and Gravitation should be written in good English. The abstract should make clear what's new in the paper. "Gravitation is a classic."—David Spergel, Princeton University "Gravitation is the encyclopedic, definitive exposition of general relativity as of Any serious researcher of general relativity will want to have General relativity and gravitation book book at hand."—Andrew Hamilton, University of Colorado, Boulder.

Gravitation by Charles Misner, Kip Thorne, and John Wheeler, is pretty much the authoritative reference on general relativity (to the extent that one exists). It discusses many aspects and applications of the theory in far more mathematical and logical detail than any other book I've seen.

A List of Technical Books on General Relativity They can often be quite useful for understanding particular details of general relativity, its applications, or the associated mathematics Problem book in relativity and gravitation, by Lightman, Press, Price and Teukolsky, Princeton U., Jul 22, · There are a great number of really excellent books on relativity, but no particular book is good for everyone: the reader is as important as that which is being read.

To be honest I imagine that self-learning relativity to be quite difficult. "Wald’s book is clearly the first textbook on general relativity with a totally modern point of view; and it succeeds very well where others are only partially successful.

The book includes full discussions of many problems of current interest which are not treated in any extant book, and all these matters are considered with perception and understanding."—S. Chandrasekhar "A tour de force. The General Theory of Relativity The General Theory of Relativity is, as the name indicates, a generalization of the Special Theory of Relativity.

It is certainly one of the most remarkable achievements of science to date, it was developed by Einstein with little or no experimental motivation but driven instead by philosophical questions. Lecture Notes on General Relativity by Columbia University.

This book covers the following topics: Special Relativity, Lorentzian Geometry, Introduction to General Relativity, Null Structure Equations, Applications to Null Hypersurfaces, Christodoulou’s Memory Effect, Black Holes, Lagrangian Theories and the Variational Principle, Hyperbolic.

The theory of relativity is amazing and important. The Aim of this book is to introduce people without a strong physics (or even scientific) background to the Special and General Theories of relativity and now I want to read other similar Scientific books/5.

Topics that deserve more attention include gravitational radiation and cosmology. However, this book can be supplemented by those by Misner, Thorne, and Wheeler, and by Weinberg.

Smolin was teaching a course on general relativity to undergraduates as well as graduate students at Yale University using this book and felt satisfied with the Author: Robert Wald. Language: English. Brand new Book. Robert Geroch's lecture notes on general relativity are unique in three main respects.

First, the physics of general relativity and the mathematics, which describes it, are masterfully intertwined in such a way that both reinforce each other to facilitate the understanding of the most abstract and subtle issues.

Gravitation Demythicised: An Introduction to Einstein's General Relativity and Cosmology for Common Man by R. Shenoy and a great selection of related books. ( views) The Theory of General Relativity and Gravitation by Ludwik Silberstein - D.

Van Nostrand, The first six lectures are devoted to Special Relativity, and the remaining ones to Einstein's General Relativity and Gravitation Theory and to relativistic Electromagnetism. Due attention is given to the critically conceptual side of the. General relativity combines the two major theoretical transitions that we have seen so far.

These two transitions are depicted in the table below. The first is represented in the vertical direction by the transition from space to spacetime. We learned from Minkowski that special relativity can be developed as the geometry of a spacetime.

This is high up on my list of favorite general relativity books, very possibly number one. The book is thick enough to make its own substantial dent in spacetime, but you'd look in vain for a wasted page/5.

General relativity is the geometric theory of gravitation published by Albert Einstein in and the current description of gravitation in modern physics. General relativity generalises special relativity and Newton's law of universal gravitation, providing a unified description of gravity as a geometric property of space and time, or spacetime.

Important and useful to every student of relativity, this book is a unique collection of some problems — with solutions — in the fields of special and general.

A summary of General Relativity in 's Albert Einstein. Learn exactly what happened in this chapter, scene, or section of Albert Einstein and what it means. Perfect for acing essays, tests, and quizzes, as well as for writing lesson plans.

Oct 03, · First published inGravitation is a landmark graduate-level textbook that presents Einstein’s general theory of relativity and offers a rigorous, full-year course on the physics of gravitation. Upon publication, Science called it “a pedagogic masterpiece,” and it has since become a classic, considered essential reading for every serious student and researcher in the field of 5/5(2).

• B.F. Schutz, A First Course in General Relativity (Cambridge, ) [*]. This is a very nice introductory text. Especially useful if, for example, you aren’t quite clear on what the energy-momentum tensor really means.

• S. Weinberg, Gravitation and Cosmology (Wiley, ) [**]. A really good book at. Albert Einstein determined that massive objects cause a distortion in space-time, which is felt as gravity. This formed the basis of this theory of general relativity. General Theory of Relativity Øyvind Grłn and Sigbjłrn Hervik.

What I usually do, when people ask for solutions and/or more problems, is suggest that they dig up a copy of the Problem Book in Relativity and Gravitation by Lightman, Press, Price, and Teukolsky.

It’s a wonderful resource, with twenty chapters chock-full of problems, all with complete solutions in the back. Cambridge Core - Cosmology, Relativity and Gravitation - General Relativity and Gravitation - edited by Abhay Ashtekar. Sep 20, · Book Preface.

This is a textbook on gravitation physics (Einstein’s “general relativity” or “geometrodynamics”). It supplies two tracks through the subject.

The first track is focused on the key physical ideas. It assumes, as mathematical prerequisite, only vector analysis and simple partial-differential equations. General relativity is a beautiful scheme for describing the gravitational ﬂeld and the equations it obeys. Nowadays this theory is often used as a prototype for other, more intricate constructions to describe forces between elementary particles or other branches of fundamental physics.

This is why in an introduction to general relativity it is of. As with the answer to a similar previous question about quantum mechanics, I don’t think there is one particular book that is the best in relation to general relativity, but there are several books that are helpful or informative in their own way.

This volume contains the proceedings of the 12th triannual International Conference on General Relativity and Gravitation, the premier conference for presentation and discussion of new ideas in relativity and cosmology. The volume contains invited talks in addition to short reports on the parallel workshops that took place at the meeting.

special relativity. This is Einstein’s famous strong equivalence principle and it makes general relativity an extension of special relativity to a curved spacetime. The third key idea is that mass (as well as mass and momentum ﬂux) curves spacetime in a manner described by the tensor ﬁeld equations of Einstein.
