General relativity (Physics)

  • Albert Einstein Memorial Lecturesby Raphael Mechoulam; Jacob Bekenstein

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 101.00

    This volume consists of a selection of the Albert Einstein Memorial Lectures presented annually at the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities. Delivered by eminent scientists and scholars, including Nobel laureates, they cover a broad spectrum of subjects in physics, chemistry, life science, mathematics, historiography and social issues. This distinguished... more...

  • Allgemeine Relativitätstheorieby Torsten Fließbach

    Spektrum Akademischer Verlag 2012; US$ 39.95

    Dieses Buch gibt eine Einführung in die Allgemeine Relativitätstheorie, also in Einsteins relativistische Theorie der Gravitation. Zu den behandelten Anwendungen der Theorie gehören Experimente im Sonnensystem, Gravitationswellen, Sterne und der Kosmos. Die Darstellung bewegt sich auf dem Niveau einer Kursvorlesung in Theoretischer Physik, also auf... 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...

  • Beyond the Einstein Addition Law and its Gyroscopic Thomas Precessionby Abraham A. Ungar

    Springer 2001; US$ 212.00

    Evidence that Einstein's addition is regulated by the Thomas precession has come to light. This text takes a look beyond the Einstein addition law and its gyroscopic precession. more...

  • Complex General Relativity by Giampiero Esposito

    Springer 1995; US$ 146.00

    This volume introduces the application of two-component spinor calculus and fibre-bundle theory to complex general relativity. A review of basic topics is presented, such as two-component spinor calculus, conformal gravity and twistor spaces for Minkowski space-time and for curved space-time. more...

  • Cracking the Einstein Codeby Fulvio Melia; Roy Kerr

    University of Chicago Press 2009; US$ 18.00

    Albert Einstein?s theory of general relativity describes the effect of gravitation on the shape of space and the flow of time. But for more than four decades after its publication, the theory remained largely a curiosity for scientists; however accurate it seemed, Einstein?s mathematical code?represented by six interlocking equations?was one of... more...

  • Deformed Spacetimeby Fabio Cardone; Roberto Mignani

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 249.00

    This volume provides a detailed discussion of the mathematical aspects and 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. This new five-dimensional scheme (Deformed Relativity... more...

  • Differential Forms and the Geometry of General Relativityby Tevian Dray

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 59.95

    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. Designed... more...

  • Differentialgeometrieby Wolfgang Kühnel

    Vieweg+Teubner Verlag 2010; US$ 39.95

    Dieses Buch ist eine Einführung in die Differentialgeometrie und ein passender Begleiter zum Differentialgeometrie-Modul (ein- und zwei-semestrig). Zunächst geht es um die klassischen Aspekte wie die Geometrie von Kurven und Flächen, bevor dann höherdimensionale Flächen sowie abstrakte Mannigfaltigkeiten betrachtet werden. Die Nahtstelle ist dabei... more...

  • Directions in General Relativity: Volume 1by B. L. Hu; M. P. Jr Ryan; C. V. Vishveshwara

    Cambridge University Press 2005; US$ 48.00

    Proceedings of the International Symposium on General Relativity, University of Maryland, March 1993. more...
