- University of Chicago Press 2009; US$ 18.00
Albert 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... more...

Records the review meeting celebrating Dennis Sciama's 65th birthday and covers fundamental questions in cosmology. more...

Physical Relativity explores the nature of the distinction at the heart of Einstein's 1905 formulation of his special theory of relativity: that between kinematics and dynamics. Einstein himself became increasingly uncomfortable with this distinction, and with the limitations of what he called the 'principle theory' approach inspired by... more...

This volume reviews conceptual conflicts at the foundations of physics now and in the past century. The focus is on the conditions and consequences of Einstein's pathbreaking achievements that sealed the decline of the classical notions of space, time, radiation, and matter, and resulted in the theory of relativity. Particular attention is paid to... more...

Marcel Grossmann Meetings are formed to further the development of General Relativity by promoting theoretical understanding in the fields of physics, mathematics, astronomy and astrophysics and to direct future technological, observational, and experimental efforts. In these meetings are discussed recent developments in classical and quantum gravity,... more...

The Geometry of Special Relativity provides an introduction to special relativity that encourages readers to see beyond the formulas to the deeper geometric structure. The text treats the geometry of hyperbolas as the key to understanding special relativity. This approach replaces the ubiquitous ? symbol of most standard treatments with the appropriate... more...
- Springer 2012; US$ 99.00
This book provides a completely revised and expanded version of the previous classic edition General Relativity and Relativistic Astrophysics. In Part I the foundations of general relativity are thoroughly developed, while Part II is devoted to tests of general relativity and many of its applications. Binary pulsars our best laboratories... more...

The concept of linearization stability arises when one compares the solutions to a linearized equation with solutions to the corresponding true equation. This requires a new definition of linearization stability adapted to Einstein's equation. However, this new definition cannot be applied directly to Einstein's equation because energy conditions tie... more...

This volume is the only monograph covering the exciting and dazzling recent developments in quantum cosmology, including the theory of the “multiverse” and eternal inflation pioneered by A Vilenkin, A Linde, S W Hawking, and others. Written by a leading expert in the field known for his depth and clarity of presentation, the volume presents... more...
