#### Special Relativity

Oxford University Press 2005; US$ 16.99Special relativity provides the foundations of our knowledge of space and time. Without it, our understanding of the world, and its place in the universe, would be unthinkable. This book gives a concise, elementary, yet exceptionally modern, introduction to special relativity. It is a gentle yet serious 'first encounter', in that it conveys... more...

#### Lesebuch Mathematik für das erste Studienjahr

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 19.95Im Begleitbuch werden die Zusammenhänge zwischen zentralen Konzepten der Mathematik erläutert: vom frühen Messen und Zählen zu Begriffen wie Metrik, Maße und Vektorräume. Wichtige Begriffe werden anhand von Beispielen und exemplarischen Resultaten erläutert. more...

#### An Introduction to General Relativity

Cambridge University Press 1991; US$ 48.00This textbook provides an introduction to general relativity for mathematics undergraduates or graduate physicists. After a review of Cartesian tensor notation and special relativity the concepts of Riemannian differential geometry are introducted. More emphasis is placed on an intuitive grasp of the subject and a calculational facility than on a rigorous... more...

#### 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...

#### A Unified Grand Tour of Theoretical Physics, Third Edition

CRC Press 2012; US$ 87.95Introduction: The Ways of Nature Geometry The Special and General Theories of Relativity Spacetime as a Differentiable Manifold Tensors Extra Geometrical Structures What is the Structure of our Spacetime? Classical Physics in Galilean and Minkowski Spacetimes The Action Principle in Galilean Spacetime Symmetries and Conservation Laws The Hamiltonian... 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...
