#### Theoretische Physik kompakt

De Gruyter 2015; US$ 70.00The advantage of this concise presentation of theoretical physics compared to multi-volume textbooks is that the deeper interconnections between separate fields can be more easily understood. The selection of topics emphasizes their many interrelationships, both mathematical and physical. 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$ 140.00Generalising Newton's law of gravitation, general relativity is one of the pillars of modern physics. On the occasion of general relativity's centennial, leading scientists in the different branches of gravitational research review the history and recent advances in the main fields of applications of the theory, which was referred to by... more...

#### General Relativity, Cosmology and Astrophysics

Springer 2014; US$ 149.00The 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...

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

Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 43.99General 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 Relativity

CRC Press 2014; US$ 49.95"This is a brilliant book. Dray has an extraordinary knack of conveying the key mathematics and concepts with an elegant economy that rivals the expositions of the legendary Paul Dirac. It is pure pleasure to see far-reaching results emerge effortlessly from easy-to-follow arguments, and for simple examples to morph into generalizations. It is so... more...

#### The Physics of Accretion onto Black Holes

Springer New York 2014; US$ 179.00Provides 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...

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

Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 105.00The 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 Relativity

Wiley 2014; US$ 176.00A 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 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...
