#### Relativity In Our Time

CRC Press 1993; US$ 52.95A publication concerning the relevance of Einstein's theory of relativity to human relations in contemporary times. more...

#### Energy And Geometry

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 79.00 US$ 71.89Special Relativity (SR) is essentially grounded on the properties of space-time, i.e. isotropy of space and homogeneity of space and time (as a consequence of the equivalence of inertial frames) and on the Galilei principle of relativity. more...

#### General Relativity

Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 84.00An advanced textbook providing a clear mathematical introduction to general relativity and its physical applications. more...

#### An Introduction to General Relativity and Cosmology

Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 56.00This book is a thorough introduction to general relativity for advanced students, including complete derivations of important results. more...

#### A Primer of Special Relativity

New Age International Pvt. Ltd., Publishers 2004; US$ 20.00A Primer of Special Relativity1 is an unusually lucid introduction to the subject specifically written for Indian students. It is intended to give the beginner a firm grounding for a more advanced course in relativity. An entire chapter is devoted to applications of the theory to elucidate a large number of topics the students (B.Sc. Physics) come... more...

#### General Relativistic Dynamics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 56.00 US$ 50.96This book brings Einstein's general relativity into action in new ways at scales ranging from the tiny Planck scale to the scale of immense galactic clusters. It presents the case that Einstein's theory of gravity can describe the observed dynamics of galaxies without invoking the unknown “dark matter” required in models based on... more...

#### Special Relativity and Motions Faster than Light

Wiley 2008; US$ 92.00 US$ 82.80While the theory of special relativity is often associated with the idea of traveling faster than light, this book shows that in all these cases subtle forces of nature conspire to prevent these motions being harnessed to send signals faster than the speed of light. The author tackles these topics both conceptually, with minimal or no mathematics,... more...

#### Rotating Fields in General Relativity

Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 35.00The aim of this book is to introduce the reader to research work on a particular aspect of rotating fields in general relativity. more...

#### Directions in General Relativity: Volume 1

#### Lectures on Gravitation

World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 46.00 US$ 41.86This book is a compilation of the lectures for a one-semester course on gravitation at the University of Rochester. Starting from a simple description of geometry, the topics are systematically developed to the big bang theory with a simple derivation of the cosmic background temperature. Several informative examples are worked out in detail as well. more...
