#### 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...

#### General Relativity

Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 79.00Advanced 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$ 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...

#### 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...

#### General Relativistic Dynamics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 91.00This 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...
