#### Singular Null Hypersurfaces in General Relativity

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 113.00This book presents a comprehensive and self-contained exposition of the mathematical theory of impulsive light-like signals in general relativity. Applications are provided in relativistic astrophysics, cosmology and alternative theories of gravity deduced from string theory. Cataclysmic astrophysical events give rise to impulsive light-like signals... 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...

#### The Special Theory of Relativity

Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 35.95Based on his famous final year undergraduate lectures on theoretical physics at Birkbeck College, Bohm presents the theory of relativity as a unified whole, making clear the reasons which led to its adoption and explaining its basic meaning. With clarity and grace, he also reveals the limited truth of some of the "common sense" assumptions which make... more...

#### The Special Theory of Relativity

Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 18.95Bohm 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...

#### BLACK HOLES, COSMOLOGY AND EXTRA DIMENSIONS

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 176.00Assuming 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 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...

#### 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...

#### Energy And Geometry

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 128.00Special 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 Spacetime

Springer 2007; US$ 249.00This 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 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...
