#### 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...

#### 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...

#### 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...

#### 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...
