#### Special Relativity

Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 84.00Thorough and pedagogical introduction to special relativity and related topics, with companion CD-ROM. more...

#### Secrets of the Old One

Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 25.00Tells the story of Einstein's papers and their impact. While to a professional physicist the mathematics in these papers is quite straight forward, the ideas behind the mathematics are not. This book aims to make these ideas accessible to a general reader with no more mathematics than one learns in high school. more...

#### Modern Canonical Quantum General Relativity

Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 76.00Canonical quantisation and loop quantum gravity theory for graduate students of quantum field theory. more...

#### The Genesis of General Relativity

Springer 2007; US$ 1,249.00This four-volume work represents the most comprehensive documentation and study of the creation of general relativity. Einstein's 1912 Zurich notebook is published for the first time in facsimile and transcript and commented on by today's major historians of science. Additional sources from Einstein and others, who from the late 19th to the... more...

#### Relativity, Gravitation and Cosmology

Oxford University Press, UK 2004; US$ 70.00This book is an introduction to Einstein's general theory of relativity, suitable for advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate courses. The content is structured so that interesting applications, such as gravitational lensing, black holes and cosmology, can be presented without the readers having to first learn the difficult mathematics of... more...

#### General Relativity and the Einstein Equations

Oxford University Press 2008; US$ 144.99Aimed at researchers in mathematics and physics, this monograph, in which the author overviews the basic ideas in General Relativity, introduces the necessary mathematics and discusses some of the key open questions in the field. - ;General Relativity has passed all experimental and observational tests to model the motion of isolated bodies with strong... more...

#### It's About Time

Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 22.95In It's About Time , N. David Mermin asserts that relativity ought to be an important part of everyone's education--after all, it is largely about time, a subject with which all are familiar. The book reveals that some of our most intuitive notions about time are shockingly wrong, and that the real nature of time discovered by Einstein can be rigorously... more...

#### Cracking the Einstein Code

University of Chicago Press 2009; US$ 18.00Albert Einstein?s theory of general relativity describes the effect of gravitation on the shape of space and the flow of time. But for more than four decades after its publication, the theory remained largely a curiosity for scientists; however accurate it seemed, Einstein?s mathematical code?represented by six interlocking equations?was one of... more...
