General Relativity: A Concise Introduction
General Relativity: A Concise Introduction
Einstein's general theory of relativity -- currently our best theory of gravity -- is important not only to specialists, but to a much wider group of physicists. This short textbook on general relativity and gravitation offers students glimpses of the vast landscape of science connected to general relativity. It incorporates some of the...
Tensors: The Mathematics of Relativity Theory and Continuum Mechanics
Tensors: The Mathematics of Relativity Theory and Continuum Mechanics
This book emerged from courses taught at the University College of Dublin, Carnegie-Mellon University and mostly at Simon Fraser University. This is a modern introduction to the theory of tensor algebra and tensor analysis. It discusses tensor algebra in Chapters 1 and 2. Differential manifold is introduced in Chapter 3. Tensor analysis,...
Gravitation (Physics Series)
Gravitation (Physics Series)
This is a textbook on gravitation physics (Einstein's "general relativity" or "geometrodynamics"). It supplies two tracks through the subject. The first track is focused on the key physical ideas. It assumes, as mathematical prerequisite, only vector analysis and simple partial-differential equations. It is suitable for a...
E=mc2: A Biography of the World's Most Famous Equation
E=mc2: A Biography of the World's Most Famous Equation

Already climbing the bestseller lists-and garnering rave reviews-this "little masterpiece"* sheds brilliant light on the equation that changed the world.

"This is not a physics book. It is a history of where the equation [E=mc2] came from and how it has changed the world. After a short chapter on the

Spacetime, Geometry and Gravitation (Progress in Mathematical Physics)
Spacetime, Geometry and Gravitation (Progress in Mathematical Physics)

Teaching Einstein’s general relativity at introductory level poses problems because students cannot begin to appreciate the basics of the theory unless they learn a sufficient amount of Riemannian geometry. Most elementary books take the easy course of telling the students a few working rules stripping the mathematical details to a minimum...

No Shadow of a Doubt: The 1919 Eclipse That Confirmed Einstein's Theory of Relativity
No Shadow of a Doubt: The 1919 Eclipse That Confirmed Einstein's Theory of Relativity

On their 100th anniversary, the story of the extraordinary scientific expeditions that ushered in the era of relativity

In 1919, British scientists led extraordinary expeditions to Brazil and Africa to test Albert Einstein’s revolutionary new theory of general relativity in what became the
...

Core Principles of Special and General Relativity
Core Principles of Special and General Relativity

This book provides an accessible, yet thorough, introduction to special and general relativity, crafted and class-tested over many years of teaching. Suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, this book provides clear descriptions of how to approach the mathematics and physics involved. It is also contains the latest...

An Introduction to Tensor Calculus, Relativity and Cosmology
An Introduction to Tensor Calculus, Relativity and Cosmology
This elementary introduction pays special attention to aspects of tensor calculus and relativity that students tend to find most difficult. Its use of relatively unsophisticated mathematics in the early chapters allows readers to develop their confidence within the framework of Cartesian coordinates before undertaking the theory of tensors in...
The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Science of Everything
The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Science of Everything
Did you ever wonder how somebody ever figured out all the details of making a cellphone system work? What about those giant MRI machines that can take a picture of your insides without a single incision? Then there is the universe. We think we know at least something about how it started billions of years ago and where it’s going billions of...
Einstein in Matrix Form: Exact Derivation of the Theory of Special and General Relativity without Tensors
Einstein in Matrix Form: Exact Derivation of the Theory of Special and General Relativity without Tensors

This book is an introduction to the theories of Special and General Relativity. The target audience are physicists, engineers and applied scientists who are looking for an understandable introduction to the topic - without too much new mathematics. The fundamental equations of Einstein's theory of Special and General Relativity are...

Quantum Cosmology and Baby Universes
Quantum Cosmology and Baby Universes
Quantum gravity is notoriously a subject where problems vastly outnumber results. This is no surprise at short distances, on the order of the Planck length, where most of us expect quantum fluctuations in the metric to cause space-time itself to lose its meaning and gravity to be subsumed (along with the other so-called fundamental interactions)...
The Fifth Postulate: How Unraveling A Two Thousand Year Old Mystery Unraveled the Universe
The Fifth Postulate: How Unraveling A Two Thousand Year Old Mystery Unraveled the Universe
What do Einstein's theory of relativity, string theory, and lots of other mind-bending—and space-bending—revelations of modern physics have in common? None of them could have been discovered until scientists and mathematicians recognized an uncomfortable truth—that there was a reason the world's greatest mathematical minds had...
