General relativity (Physics)

Most popular at the top

  • An Introduction to General Relativityby L. P. Hughston; K. P. Tod

    Cambridge University Press 1991; US$ 42.00

    This 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 e more...

  • Energy And Geometryby Fabio Cardone; Roberto Mignani

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 128.00

    Special 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 and Gravitationby Petros Florides; Brien Nolan; Adrian Ottewill

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 287.00

    This 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...

  • Special Relativityby U.E. Schroder; P. Roman

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1990; US$ 99.00

    This 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...

  • Singular Null Hypersurfaces in General Relativityby C Barrabès; P A Hogan

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 113.00

    This 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...

  • General Relativistic Dynamicsby Fred I Cooperstock

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 91.00

    This 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...

  • Albert Einstein Memorial Lecturesby Raphael Mechoulam; Jacob Bekenstein

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 101.00

    This volume consists of a selection of the Albert Einstein Memorial Lectures presented annually at the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities. Delivered by eminent scientists and scholars, including Nobel laureates, they cover a broad spectrum of subjects in physics, chemistry, life science, mathematics, historiography and social issues. This distinguished... more...

  • BLACK HOLES, COSMOLOGY AND EXTRA DIMENSIONSby Kirill A. Bronnikov; Sergey G. Rubin

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 176.00

    Assuming foundational knowledge of special and general relativity, this book guides the reader on issues surrounding black holes, wormholes, cosmology, and extra dimensions. Its first part is devoted to local strong field configurations (black holes and wormholes) in general relativity and the most relevant of alternative theories: scalar–tensor,... more...

  • Relativityby Asghar Qadir

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1989; US$ 73.00

    The 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 Studentsby Peter Lorimer

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1990; US$ 73.00

    One 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...
