#### 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...

#### Special Relativity

World Scientific Publishing Company 1990; US$ 29.00 US$ 26.39This book provides a thorough discussion of the concepts and main consequences of special relativity. Treated in detail are the Lorentz transformations, their kinematical consequences (the so-called paradoxes), relativistic mechanics, electrodynamics as an example of a relativistic field theory, and the principal features of relativistic hydrodynamics.... more...

#### The Special Theory of Relativity for Mathematics Students

World Scientific Publishing Company 1990; US$ 76.00 US$ 69.16One of the problems facing mathematics and physics is that mathematicians and physicists speak languages that the others find hard to understand. These notes take a fundamental part of physics, the special theory of relativity and describe it in terms that can be understood by mathematics students who have studied the two basic undergraduate topics,... 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$ 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...

#### 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$ 79.73While 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...
