General relativity (Physics)

  • Secrets of the Old Oneby Jeremy Bernstein

    Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 25.00

    Tells 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...

  • 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...

  • The Special Theory of Relativityby David Bohm

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 35.95

    Based on his famous final year undergraduate lectures on theoretical physics, Bohm presents the theory of relativity as a unified whole, making clear the reasons which led to its adoption, and explaining its basic meaning. more...

  • BLACK HOLES, COSMOLOGY AND EXTRA DIMENSIONSby Kirill A. Bronnikov; Sergey G. Rubin

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 176.00

    Assuming foundational knowledge of special and general relativity, this book guides the reader on issues surrounding black holes, wormholes, cosmology, and extra dimensions. Its first part is devoted to local strong field configurations (black holes and wormholes) in general relativity and the most relevant of alternative theories: scalar–tensor,... more...

  • Physical Relativityby Harvey R. Brown

    Clarendon Press 2005; US$ 44.99

    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...

  • Energy And Geometryby Fabio Cardone; Roberto Mignani

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 128.00

    Special Relativity (SR) is essentially grounded on the properties of space-time, i.e. isotropy of space and homogeneity of space and time (as a consequence of the equivalence of inertial frames) and on the Galilei principle of relativity. more...

  • Deformed Spacetimeby Fabio Cardone; Roberto Mignani

    Springer 2007; US$ 249.00

    This volume provides a detailed discussion of the mathematical aspects and the physical applications of a new geometrical structure of space-time, based on a generalization ("deformation") of the usual Minkowski space, as supposed to be endowed with a metric whose coefficients depend on the energy. Such a formalism (Deformed Special Relativity,... more...

  • Relativity, Gravitation and Cosmologyby Ta-Pei Cheng

    Oxford University Press, UK 2004; US$ 70.00

    This 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 Equationsby Yvonne Choquet-Bruhat

    Oxford University Press 2008; US$ 144.99

    Aimed 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...

  • General Relativistic Dynamicsby Fred I Cooperstock

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 91.00

    This book brings Einstein's general relativity into action in new ways at scales ranging from the tiny Planck scale to the scale of immense galactic clusters. It presents the case that Einstein's theory of gravity can describe the observed dynamics of galaxies without invoking the unknown “dark matter” required in models based on... more...
