#### Albert Einstein Memorial Lectures

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 101.00This 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 Relativitätstheorie

Springer 2012; US$ 39.95Dieses 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,... 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...

#### Cracking the Einstein Code

University of Chicago Press 2009; US$ 18.00Albert 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 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...

#### 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...

#### Directions in General Relativity: Volume 1

Cambridge University Press 1993; US$ 88.00Proceedings of the International Symposium on General Relativity, University of Maryland, March 1993. more...

#### Dynamics and Relativity

Wiley 2014; US$ 176.00? Dynamics and Relativity by Forshaw and Smith was the ideal book for the upper level course Physics from Newton to Einstein at Yale since it was thoroughly modern and extremely lucid. Its most admirable features are the countless solved examples that made it ideal for self-study and a very detailed and lucid introduction to relativity.? ? Ramamurti... more...

#### Einstein and the Changing Worldviews of Physics

Springer 2012; US$ 149.00This volume reviews conceptual conflicts at the foundations of physics now and in the past century. The focus is on the conditions and consequences of Einstein's pathbreaking achievements that sealed the decline of the classical notions of space, time, radiation, and matter, and resulted in the theory of relativity. Particular attention is paid to... more...
