"The publication of The Genesis of General Relativity marks the outcome of 10 years of research into the origins of Einstein’s General Relativity Theory . It provides a comprehensive study and in-depth analysis of how the work of Albert Einstein and his contemporaries changes our understanding of space, time and gravitation. . The Tenth International Conference on General Relativity and Gravitation (GR10) was held from July 3 to July 8, , in Padova, Italy. These Conferences take place every three years, under the auspices of the International Society on General Relativity and Gravitation, with the purpose of assessing the current research in the field, critically discussing the prog ress made and disclosing.
General Relativity and Cosmology. This book explains the following topics: Frames of Reference, Newtonian Relativity, Einsteinian Relativity, Geometry of Flat Spacetime, Electrodynamics in Special Relativity. General Relativity. Baby Differential Geometry, Curvature, Gravitation and the Einstein Equation, Black Holes and Gravitational. Introduction to General Relativity and Cosmology gives undergraduate students an overview of the fundamental ideas behind the geometric theory of gravitation and spacetime. Through pointers on how to modify and generalise Einstein's theory to enhance understanding, it provides a link between standard textbook content and current research in the field.
General relativity is a beautiful scheme for describing the gravitational ﬂeld and the equations it obeys. Nowadays this theory is often used as a prototype for other, more intricate constructions to describe forces between elementary particles or other branches of fundamental physics. This is why in an introduction to general relativity it is of. In , he published a treatise entitled "Foundations of the General Theory of Relativity," in which he established the terminology of "special" and "general" relativity and presented his theory formally. Then, at the end of , he published a small book entitled On the Special and the General Theory of Relativity, Generally Comprehensible.

First published inGravitation is a landmark graduate-level textbook that presents Einstein’s general theory of relativity and offers a rigorous, full-year course on the physics of gravitation. Upon publication, Science called it “a pedagogic masterpiece,” and it has since become a classic, considered essential reading for every serious student and researcher in the field of /5().
Hartle's "Gravity" is a textbook for learning general relativity. On the back cover of the book, there are a lot of praises for the book from famous physicists including Stephen Hawking's. Overall, I enjoyed the book and the reading was beneficial.
The book contains Cited by: General Relativity and Gravitation, A Centennial Perspective, edited by Abhay Ashtekar, Beverly K. Berger, James Isenberg, and Malcolm MacCallum, Cambridge Univ. Press, A collection of the latest thoughts on many subjects, each written by an expert in that sub-field, and quite up to date, both theoretical and experimental.
The essential mathematical methods for the formulation of general relativity are presented in Chapters 2 and 3 while more advanced techniques are discussed in Appendices A to C. Wald believes that this is the best way forward because putting all the mathematical techniques at the beginning of the book would prove to be a major obstruction for Author: Robert Wald.
This classic book is essential reading for all those interested in the development of modern Arthur Eddington's account of the general theory of relativity, 'without, ' as he says in his preface, 'introducing anything very technical in the way of mathematics, physics or philosophy', was first published in the exciting days of soon after the first objective/5.
• B.F. Schutz, A First Course in General Relativity (Cambridge, ) [*]. This is a very nice introductory text. Especially useful if, for example, you aren’t quite clear on what the energy-momentum tensor really means.
Gravitation by Charles Misner, Kip Thorne, and John Wheeler, is pretty much the authoritative reference on general relativity (to the extent that one exists). It discusses many aspects and applications of the theory in far more mathematical and logical detail than any other book I've seen.
"Gravitation is a classic."—David Spergel, Princeton University "Gravitation is the encyclopedic, definitive exposition of general relativity as of Any serious researcher of general relativity will want to have this book at hand."—Andrew Hamilton, University of Colorado, Boulder. Founded inGeneral Relativity and Gravitation has been the first journal dedicated to all aspects of the classical theory of general relativity.
Published under the auspices of the International Society on General Relativity and Gravitation (ISGRG), it presents the most important aspects of modern gravitational physics. There are a great number of really excellent books on relativity, but no particular book is good for everyone: the reader is as important as that which is being read.
To be honest I imagine that self-learning relativity to be quite difficult. Problem Book in Relativity and Gravitation Princeton University Press, In print, ISBN X; list price $ (paperback) Since the only way to learn a mathematical theory is by doing problems, the more the merrier, this book is an invaluable resource for serious students.
Martin, General Relativity: A First Course For Physicists. The theory of relativity is amazing and important. The Aim of this book is to introduce people without a strong physics (or even scientific) background to the Special and General Theories of relativity and now I want to read other similar Scientific books/5.
Einstein's theory of general relativity predicted that the space-time around Earth would be not only warped but also twisted by the planet's rotation. Gravity Probe B showed this to be correct. Cambridge Core - Cosmology, Relativity and Gravitation - General Relativity and Gravitation - edited by Abhay Ashtekar.
The theory of general relativity and gravitation; based on a course of lectures delivered at the Conference on recent advances in physics held at the University of Toronto in January by Ludwik Silberstein PH. [Leather Bound].
The Theory of General Relativity and Gravitation by Ludwik Silberstein. Publisher: D. Van Nostrand ISBN/ASIN: BSPFVYK Number of pages: Description: The first six lectures are devoted to Special Relativity, and the remaining ones to Einstein's General Relativity and Gravitation Theory and to relativistic Electromagnetism.
Since your declaration of “basic” is vague, I will start with the standard books I would recommend, starting with special relativity.
Try to begin with Introduction to Electrodynamics by David Griffiths. The two chapters on relativity cover most c. involved in its construction); from this point of view the General Theory of Relativity is a gem 3. The completed formulation of the General Theory of Relativity was pub-lished in (Fig.
Figure Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity paper. 3The Special Theory of Relativity is equally nice, it is based on the one statement thatFile Size: 1MB. The book contains almost problems and solutions in the fields of special relativity, general relativity, gravitation, relativistic astrophysics, and cosmology.
Emphasis is placed on computable results, predictions, and models for material phenomena in the real universe. The problems deal with special-relativistic kinematics, dynamics, coordinate transformations, invariants, and tensors Cited by:.
This popular book is downloaded over 40 times per year and guarantees to be captivating and surprising on every page.
First, the book introduces special relativity in a simple way. What does "relativity" mean? This is an introduction to Einstein's theories of special and general relativity. This text makes relativity particularly easy and.An essential resource for learning about general relativity and much more, from four leading experts Important and useful to every student of relativity, this book is a unique collection of some problems--with solutions--in the fields of special and general relativity, gravitation, relativistic astrophysics, and .This set of lecture notes on general relativity has been expanded into a textbook, Spacetime and Geometry: An Introduction to General Relativity, available for purchase online or at finer bookstores 50% of the book is completely new; I’ve also polished and improved many of the explanations, and made the organization more flexible and user-friendly.
