#### A First Course in General Relativity

Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 72.00Second edition of a widely-used textbook providing the first step into general relativity for undergraduate students with minimal mathematical background. more...

#### Differential Forms and the Geometry of General Relativity

Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 49.95Differential Forms and the Geometry of General Relativity provides readers with a coherent path to understanding relativity. Requiring little more than calculus and some linear algebra, it helps readers learn just enough differential geometry to grasp the basics of general relativity. The book contains two intertwined but distinct halves. ... more...

#### Introduction to General Relativity, Black Holes and Cosmology

Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 43.99General Relativity is a beautiful geometric theory, simple in its mathematical formulation but leading to numerous consequences with striking physical interpretations: gravitational waves, black holes, cosmological models, and so on. This introductory textbook is written for mathematics students interested in physics and physics students interested... more...

#### Lectures on Gravitation

World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 136.00This 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...

#### 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$ 128.00Special 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...

#### An Introduction to General Relativity and Cosmology

Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 51.00This 2006 book is a thorough introduction to general relativity for advanced students, including complete derivations of important results. more...

#### Shock Wave Interactions in General Relativity

Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2007; US$ 139.00Covers the initial value problem for Einstein's gravitational field equations with fluid sources and shock wave initial data. This monograph aims to prove a certain local existence theorem. It is useful for graduate students and researchers in mathematics and physics. more...

#### Deformed Spacetime

Springer 2007; US$ 249.00This volume provides a detailed discussion of the mathematical aspects and the physical applications of a new geometrical structure of space-time, based on a generalization ("deformation") of the usual Minkowski space, as supposed to be endowed with a metric whose coefficients depend on the energy. Such a formalism (Deformed Special Relativity,... more...
