#### Essays in General Relativity

Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 72.95Essays 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...

#### Theoretische Physik kompakt

De Gruyter 2015; US$ 70.00Vom Konkreten zum Abstrakten Diese knappe Darstellung der Theoretischen Physik hat gegenüber mehrbändigen Werken den Vorteil, dass die tiefen Zusammenhänge zwischen den einzelnen Gebieten leichter erfasst werden können. Die Themenauswahl hebt die vielen Interrelationen physikalischer als auch mathematischer Art hervor. Neben der Betonung... more...

#### The Routledge Guidebook to Einstein's Relativity

Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 32.95Albert Einstein, one of the most prolific scientists of the twentieth century, developed the theory of relativity which was crucial for the advancement of modern physics. Young Einstein identified a paradox between Newtonian Mechanics and Maxwell’s equations which pointed to a flawed understanding of space and time by the scientists of the day. In... more...

#### General Relativity: The most beautiful of theories

De Gruyter 2015; US$ 154.00Generalising Newton's law of gravitation, general relativity is one of the pillars of modern physics. While applications in the beginning were restricted to isolated effects such as a proper understanding of Mercury's orbit, the second half of the twentieth century saw a massive development of applications. These include cosmology, gravitational... more...

#### Introduction to General Relativity, Black Holes, and Cosmology

OUP Oxford 2014; US$ 43.99A precise yet simple introduction to the foundations and main consequences of General Relativity. The first five chapters from Choquet-Bruhat's General Relativity and the Einstein Equations (2008) have been updated with new sections and chapters on black holes, gravitational waves, singularities and more to form this textbook. more...

#### The Physics of Accretion onto Black Holes

Springer New York 2014; US$ 123.15Provides a comprehensive summary on the physical models and current theory of black hole accretion, growth and mergers, in both the supermassive and stellar-mass cases. This title reviews in-depth research on accretion on all scales, from galactic binaries to intermediate mass and supermassive black holes. Possible future directions of accretion... more...

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

CRC Press 2014; US$ 59.95Differential 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. Designed... more...

#### The Special Theory of Relativity bound with Relativity: A Very Elementary Exposition

Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 47.95The 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...

#### General Relativity, Cosmology and Astrophysics

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 100.76The articles included in this Volume represent a broad and highly qualified view on the present state of general relativity, quantum gravity, and their cosmological and astrophysical implications. As such, it may serve as a valuable source of knowledge and inspiration for experts in these fields, as well as an advanced source of information for young... more...

#### Dynamics and Relativity

Wiley 2014; US$ 65.00 US$ 56.33A 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...
