General relativity (Physics)

  • Introduction to General Relativity, Black Holes and Cosmologyby Yvonne Choquet-Bruhat

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 43.99

    General Relativity is a beautiful geometric theory, simple in its mathematical formulation but leading to numerous consequences with striking physical interpretations: gravitational waves, black holes, cosmological models, and so on. This introductory textbook is written for mathematics students interested in physics and physics students interested... more...

  • Differential Forms and the Geometry of General Relativityby Tevian Dray

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 49.95

    Differential 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...

  • The Special Theory of Relativity bound with Relativityby Herbert Dingle; Sir Oliver Lodge

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 105.00

    The Special Theory of Relativity: Based on a short course of lectures delivered in the late 1930s, this short book presents the theory of Special Relativity by formulating a redefinition of the measurement of length, and thus will appeal to students of physics who wish to think through Einstein?s thought without the encumbrance of quasi-scientific... more...

  • Dynamics and Relativityby Jeffrey Forshaw; Gavin Smith

    Wiley 2014; US$ 60.00

    A new title in the Manchester Physics Series, this introductory text emphasises physical principles behind classical mechanics and relativity. It assumes little in the way of prior knowledge, introducing relevant mathematics and carefully developing it within a physics context. Designed to provide a logical development of the subject, the book is divided... 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...

  • Essays in General Relativityby Frank J. Tipler

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    Essays in General Relativity: A Festschrift for Abraham Taub is collection of essays to honor Professor Abraham H. Taub on the occasion of his retirement from the mathematics faculty of the University of California at Berkeley. Relativistic hydrodynamics has always been a subject dear to Taub's heart. In fact, many basic results on special relativistic... more...

  • Lesebuch Mathematik für das erste Studienjahrby Joachim Hilgert

    Springer 2013; US$ 19.95

    Dieses Buch ist eine Begleitlektüre zum ersten Jahr des Mathematikstudiums und darüber hinaus. Im Mittelpunkt stehen Motivation und Erläuterung der zentralen Begriffsbildungen anhand von Beispielen und exemplarischen Resultaten. Ausgehend von den elementarsten und historisch frühesten mathematischen Konzepten des Messens und Zählens... more...

  • Quantum Physics Without Quantum Philosophyby Detlef Dürr; Sheldon Goldstein; Nino Zanghì

    Springer 2012; US$ 149.00

    It has often been claimed that without drastic conceptual innovations a genuine explanation of quantum interference effects and quantum randomness is impossible. This book concerns Bohmian mechanics, a simple particle theory that is a counterexample to such claims. The gentle introduction and other contributions collected here show how the phenomena... 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...

  • 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...
