#### 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...

#### General Relativity

Cambridge University Press 1999; US$ 72.00A clear and concise introduction to the theory of general relativity for final-year undergraduate mathematics or physics students. more...

#### Relativity Demystified

McGraw-Hill Education 2005; US$ 23.00In Relativity Demystified a physicist explains Einstein's theory of relativity in layman's terms, minus heavy-duty discussion or formal mathematics. Author David McMahon gradually builds up readers' practical skills to a point where they can eventually solve real problems in the field of general relativity. The book offers examples that vary in... more...

#### General Relativity and the Einstein Equations

OUP Oxford 2008; US$ 144.99Aimed at researchers in mathematics and physics, this monograph, in which the author overviews the basic ideas in General Relativity, introduces the necessary mathematics and discusses some of the key open questions in the field. more...

#### A First Course in General Relativity

Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 72.00Second edition of a widely-used textbook providing the first step into general relativity for undergraduate students with minimal mathematical background. more...

#### The Nature of Space and Time

Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 14.95 US$ 13.60Einstein said that the most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible. But was he right? Can the quantum theory of fields and Einstein?s general theory of relativity, the two most accurate and successful theories in all of physics, be united into a single quantum theory of gravity? Can quantum and cosmos ever be combined?... more...

#### Introduction to Surface and Superlattice Excitations

Cambridge University Press 1989; US$ 112.00An introduction to the properties of wavelike excitations associated with surfaces and interfaces. The emphasis is on acoustic, optic, and magnetic excitations, and, apart from one section on liquid surfaces, the text concentrates on solids. The important topic of superlattices is also discussed, in which the different kinds of excitation are considered... more...

#### Quantum Theory and Reality

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 116.86The Tum of the Tide During centuries physicists were supposed to be studying the physical world. Since the turn of the century this assumption has often been challenged as naive: it was proclaimed that physics is not about the external world but about observers and their manipUlations: that it is meaningless to talk of anything else than observation... more...

#### An Introduction to the Kinetic Theory of Gases

Cambridge University Press 1982; US$ 28.00This book can be described as a student's edition of the author's Dynamical Theory of Gases. more...
