General relativity (Physics)

Most popular at the top

  • Introduction to General Relativityby Lewis Ryder

    Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 56.00

    Student-friendly, well illustrated textbook for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students in physics and mathematics. more...

  • It's About Timeby N. David Mermin

    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 22.95

    In 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 Codeby Fulvio Melia; Roy Kerr

    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...

  • The Renaissance of General Relativity and Cosmologyby George Ellis; Antonio Lanza; John Miller

    Cambridge University Press 1993; US$ 65.00

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

  • The Special Theory of Relativityby David Bohm

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 18.95

    Bohm describes how the notion of Relativity strikes at the heart of our very conception of the universe, regardless of whether we are physicists or philosophers. more...

  • Einstein and the Changing Worldviews of Physicsby Christoph Lehner; Jürgen Renn; Matthias Schemmel

    Springer 2012; US$ 149.00

    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...

  • The Geometry of Special Relativityby Tevian Dray

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 36.95

    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...

  • General Relativityby Norbert Straumann

    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...

  • Stability by Linearization of Einstein's Field Equationby Lluís Bruna; Joan Girbau

    Springer 2013; US$ 99.00

    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...

  • Eternal Inflationby Sergei Winitzki

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 154.00

    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...
