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

CRC Press 2012; US$ 87.95A Unified Grand Tour of Theoretical Physics invites its readers to a guided exploration of the theoretical ideas that shape our contemporary understanding of the physical world at the fundamental level. Its central themes, comprising space-time geometry and the general relativistic account of gravity, quantum field theory and the gauge theories... more...

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

De Gruyter 2015; US$ 154.00Generalising Newton's law of gravitation, general relativity is one of the pillars of modern physics. While applications in the beginning were restricted to isolated effects such as a proper understanding of Mercury's orbit, the second half of the twentieth century saw a massive development of applications. These include cosmology, gravitational... more...

#### Singular Null Hypersurfaces in General Relativity

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 70.00 US$ 63.70This 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$ 70.00Vom Konkreten zum Abstrakten Diese knappe Darstellung der Theoretischen Physik hat gegenüber mehrbändigen Werken den Vorteil, dass die tiefen Zusammenhänge zwischen den einzelnen Gebieten leichter erfasst werden können. Die Themenauswahl hebt die vielen Interrelationen physikalischer als auch mathematischer Art hervor. Neben der Betonung... more...

#### Introduction to General Relativity, Black Holes, and Cosmology

OUP Oxford 2014; US$ 43.99A precise yet simple introduction to the foundations and main consequences of General Relativity. The first five chapters from Choquet-Bruhat's General Relativity and the Einstein Equations (2008) have been updated with new sections and chapters on black holes, gravitational waves, singularities and more to form this textbook. 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...

#### Complex General Relativity

Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 145.48This book is written for theoretical and mathematical physicists and mat- maticians interested in recent developments in complex general relativity and their application to classical and quantum gravity. Calculations are presented by paying attention to those details normally omitted in research papers, for pedagogical r- sons. Familiarity with fibre-bundle... more...

#### Beyond the Einstein Addition Law and its Gyroscopic Thomas Precession

Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 145.48Evidence that Einstein's addition is regulated by the Thomas precession has come to light, turning the notorious Thomas precession, previously considered the ugly duckling of special relativity theory, into the beautiful swan of gyrogroup and gyrovector space theory, where it has been extended by abstraction into an automorphism generator, called the... more...

#### Exact Solutions of Einstein's Field Equations

Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 96.00A paperback edition of a classic text for graduates and researchers in relativity, theoretical physics, astrophysics and mathematics. more...

#### General Relativity

Cambridge University Press 1999; US$ 72.00A clear and concise introduction to the theory of general relativity for final-year undergraduate mathematics or physics students. more...
