Einstein's Theory book by Oyvind Gron
This book provides an introduction to the theory of relativity and the mathematics used in its processes. Three elements of the book make it stand apart from previously published books on the theory of relativity. First, the book starts at a lower mathematical level than standard books with tensor calculus of sufficient maturity to make it possible to give detailed calculations of relativistic predictions of practical experiments. Self-contained introductions are given, for example vector calculus, differential calculus and integrations. Second, in-between calculations have been included, making it possible for the non-technical reader to follow step-by-step calculations. Thirdly, the conceptual development is gradual and rigorous in order to provide the inexperienced reader with a philosophically satisfying understanding of the theory. The goal of this book is to provide the reader with a sound conceptual understanding of both the special and general theories of relativity, and gain an insight into how the mathematics of the theory can be utilized to calculate relativistic effects.

Equations of Motion in General Relativity by Hideki Asada
Einstein's theory of general relativity describes the gravitational field of a system of stars and predicts their paths by providing the 'equations of motion' of each star. Extracting these equations from his field equations is a highly technical procedure described in this book. Observable quantities can then be calculated to test the theory.
