#### Special Relativity

World Scientific Publishing Company 1990; US$ 99.00This 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...

#### Relativity

World Scientific Publishing Company 1989; US$ 73.00The most important feature in this book is the simple presentation with details of calculations. It is very easy to follow. Fairly sophisticated calculations are developed very rapidly. The presentation is logical and the detailed coverage makes this book very readable and useful. The contents develop Relativity as a modern theory of motion, starting... more...

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

World Scientific Publishing Company 1990; US$ 73.00One 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...

#### General Relativity and Gravitation

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 287.00This authoritative volume provides a snapshot of the state of the art in gravitational physics and related mathematical fields, as well as a review of recent achievements and prospects for future work. With contributing authors among the world leaders in their respective fields, this proceedings volume is a worthy addition to this conference series,... more...

#### General Relativity: The most beautiful of theories

De Gruyter 2015; US$ 140.00Generalising Newton's law of gravitation, general relativity is one of the pillars of modern physics. On the occasion of general relativity's centennial, leading scientists in the different branches of gravitational research review the history and recent advances in the main fields of applications of the theory, which was referred to by... more...

#### Singular Null Hypersurfaces in General Relativity

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 113.00This book presents a comprehensive and self-contained exposition of the mathematical theory of impulsive light-like signals in general relativity. Applications are provided in relativistic astrophysics, cosmology and alternative theories of gravity deduced from string theory. Cataclysmic astrophysical events give rise to impulsive light-like signals... more...

#### Theoretische Physik kompakt

De Gruyter 2015; US$ 70.00The advantage of this concise presentation of theoretical physics compared to multi-volume textbooks is that the deeper interconnections between separate fields can be more easily understood. The selection of topics emphasizes their many interrelationships, both mathematical and physical. 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...

#### The Special Theory of Relativity

Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 35.95Based on his famous final year undergraduate lectures on theoretical physics at Birkbeck College, Bohm presents the theory of relativity as a unified whole, making clear the reasons which led to its adoption and explaining its basic meaning. With clarity and grace, he also reveals the limited truth of some of the "common sense" assumptions which make... more...
