In Topics in the Foundations of General Relativity and Newtonian Gravitation Theory , David B. Malament presents the basic logical-mathematical structure of general relativity and considers a number of special topics concerning the foundations of general relativity and its relation to Newtonian gravitation theory. These special topics include the... more...

A small army of physicists, chemists, mathematicians, and engineers has joined forces to attack a classic problem, the reversibility paradox, with modern tools. This book describes their work from the perspective of computer simulation, emphasizing the authors' approach to the problem of understanding the compatibility, and even inevitability,... more...
