#### The Renaissance of General Relativity and Cosmology

Cambridge University Press 1993; US$ 72.00Records the review meeting celebrating Dennis Sciama's 65th birthday and covers fundamental questions in cosmology. more...

#### Physical Relativity

Clarendon Press 2005; US$ 44.99Physical 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...

#### Einstein and the Changing Worldviews of Physics

Springer 2012; US$ 149.00This 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...

#### The Twelfth Marcel Grossmann Meeting on General Relativity

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 681.00Marcel 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...

#### General Relativity

Springer 2012; US$ 99.00This 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...

#### Stability by Linearization of Einstein's Field Equation

Springer 2013; US$ 99.00The 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...

#### Eternal Inflation

World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 154.00This 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...

#### The Geometry of Special Relativity

CRC Press 2012; US$ 36.95The 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...

#### Differential Forms and the Geometry of General Relativity

CRC Press 2015; US$ 49.95Differential Forms and the Geometry of General Relativity provides readers with a coherent path to understanding relativity. Requiring little more than calculus and some linear algebra, it helps readers learn just enough differential geometry to grasp the basics of general relativity. The book contains two intertwined but distinct halves. ... more...
