  • Relativity In Our Timeby Mendel Sachs

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 68.95

    "Relativity In our Time" is a book concerning the relevance of Einstein's theory to human relations in contemporary times. lt is physics and it is philosophy. lt is a discussion about one of the greatest of all pillars of 20th century thought and science. Based on a seminar course for a mixture of science and humanities students, the approach and narrative... more...

  • Energy And Geometryby Fabio Cardone; Roberto Mignani

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 40.00 US$ 36.40

    Special Relativity (SR) is essentially grounded on the properties of space-time, i.e. isotropy of space and homogeneity of space and time (as a consequence of the equivalence of inertial frames) and on the Galilei principle of relativity. more...

  • A Primer of Special Relativity by P.L. Sardesai

    New Age International Pvt. Ltd., Publishers 2004; US$ 20.00

    A Primer of Special Relativity1 is an unusually lucid introduction to the subject specifically written for Indian students. It is intended to give the beginner a firm grounding for a more advanced course in relativity. An entire chapter is devoted to applications of the theory to elucidate a large number of topics the students (B.Sc. Physics) come... more...

  • General Relativistic Dynamicsby Fred I Cooperstock

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 28.00 US$ 25.48

    This book brings Einstein's general relativity into action in new ways at scales ranging from the tiny Planck scale to the scale of immense galactic clusters. It presents the case that Einstein's theory of gravity can describe the observed dynamics of galaxies without invoking the unknown “dark matter” required in models based on... more...

  • Special Relativity and Motions Faster than Lightby Moses Fayngold; Roland Wengenmayr

    Wiley 2008; US$ 92.00 US$ 82.80

    While the theory of special relativity is often associated with the idea of traveling faster than light, this book shows that in all these cases subtle forces of nature conspire to prevent these motions being harnessed to send signals faster than the speed of light. The author tackles these topics both conceptually, with minimal or no mathematics,... more...

  • Rotating Fields in General Relativityby Jamal Nazrul Islam

    Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 35.00

    The aim of this book is to introduce the reader to research work on a particular aspect of rotating fields in general relativity. more...

  • Lectures on Gravitationby Ashok Das

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 46.00 US$ 41.86

    This book is a compilation of the lectures for a one-semester course on gravitation at the University of Rochester. Starting from a simple description of geometry, the topics are systematically developed to the big bang theory with a simple derivation of the cosmic background temperature. Several informative examples are worked out in detail as well. more...

  • Albert Einstein Memorial Lecturesby Raphael Mechoulam; Jacob Bekenstein

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 27.00 US$ 24.57

    This volume consists of a selection of the Albert Einstein Memorial Lectures presented annually at the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities.

This distinguished... more...

  • Differentialgeometrieby Wolfgang Kühnel

    Vieweg+Teubner Verlag 2010; US$ 24.56

    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...

  • BLACK HOLES, COSMOLOGY AND EXTRA DIMENSIONSby Kirill A. Bronnikov; Sergey G. Rubin

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 54.00 US$ 49.14

    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...
