The book contains chapters on gravitational radiation, cosmology, and connections between general relativity and the fundamental physics of the microworld. It explains the geometry of curved spaces and contains key solutions of Einstein's equations - the Schwarzschild and Kerr by: This book presents, in a natural and beautiful way, the general relativity as a scheme for describing the gravitational field and the equations it obeys.

Starting from physical motivations, curved coordinates are introduced, and then the notion of an affine connection field is Cited by: Introduction to General Relativity and Cosmology gives undergraduate students an overview of the fundamental ideas behind the geometric Introduction to general relativity book 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/5(29).

What is unique in this book is that it has the Gödel cosmological solution to the general relativity equations. It has a good coverage of Weyl's gauge equations as well and a discussion of the topological implications of black holes.

The mathematics is well done and relatively easy to follow. This text is a classic text on gravity theory/5(5). The rigour behind this book will provide readers with the perfect preparation to follow the great mathematical progress in the actual development, as well as the ability to model, the latest astrophysical and cosmological observations.

The book presents basic General Relativity and provides a basis for understanding and using the fundamental by: Introduction to General Relativity book. Read reviews from world’s largest community for readers.3/5(1).

Following the approach of Lev Landau and Evgenii Lifshitz, this book introduces the theory of special and general relativity with the Lagrangian formalism and the principle of least action. This method allows the complete theory to be constructed starting from a small number of assumptions, and is the most natural approach in modern theoretical : Springer Singapore.

A working knowledge of Einstein's theory of general relativity is an essential tool for every physicist today. This self-contained book is an introductory text on the subject aimed at first-year graduate students, or advanced undergraduates, in physics that assumes only a basic understanding of classical Lagrangian mechanics/5(3).

"Spacetime and Geometry: An Introduction to General Relativity" provides a lucid and thoroughly modern introduction to general relativity.

With an accessible and lively writing style, it introduces modern techniques to what can often be a formal and intimidating subject/5(34). Spacetime and Geometry: An Introduction to General Relativity provides a lucid and thoroughly modern introduction to general relativity.

With an accessible and lively writing style, it introduces modern techniques to what can often be a formal and intimidating subject/5. An excellent introduction to general relativity: it's well written, all the ideas are explained at an intuitive level and with an easy-to-understand language; furthermore no mathematical prerequisites of Cited by: I can only recommend textbooks because that's what I've used, but here are some suggestions: Gravity: An Introduction To General Relativity by James Hartle is reasonably good as an A First Course in General Relativity by Bernard Schutz is one that I've heard similar things about, Spacetime.

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. 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.

General relativity is now an essential part of undergraduate and graduate courses in physics, astrophysics and applied mathematics. This simple, user-friendly introduction to relativity is ideal for a first course in the subject. Beginning with a comprehensive but simple review of special relativity, the book creates a framework from which to launch the ideas of general relativity.

Only a basic understanding of classical lagrangian mechanics is assumed; beyond that, the reader should find the material to be self-contained.

Topics covered range from Newton's laws of motion and the Galilean transformation to tensor analysis, equations of motion of free particles, electromagnetism, and.

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. It.
