Einstein's Theory by Oyvind Gron

Book Description

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.

Introduction to 3+1 Numerical Relativity by Miguel Alcubierre Introduction to 3+1 Numerical Relativity by Miguel Alcubierre

This book is a self-contained introduction to the field of numerical relativity. Starting from basic general relativity, it introduces all the concepts and tools necessary for the fully relativistic simulation of astrophysical systems with strong and dynamical gravitational fields.

Relativity for Scientists and Engineers by Ray Skinner Relativity for Scientists and Engineers by Ray Skinner

Three-part treatment explores special relativity in terms of kinematics and introductory dynamics as well as general relativity. Ideal for classroom use, supplementary reading, and self-study. Numerous problems with solutions. 1969 edition.

Relativity, Gravitation and Cosmology by Ta-Pei Cheng Relativity, Gravitation and Cosmology by Ta-Pei Cheng

This book provides an introduction to Einstein's general theory of relativity. A "physics-first" approach is adopted so that interesting applications come before the more difficult task of solving the Einstein equation. The book includes extensive coverage of cosmology, and is designed to allow readers to study the subject alone.

Relativity Made Relatively Easy by Andrew M. Steane Relativity Made Relatively Easy by Andrew M. Steane

This book unfolds the subject of Relativity for undergraduate students of physics. It fills a gap between introductory descriptions and texts for researchers. Assuming almost no prior knowledge, it allows the student to handle all the Relativity needed for a university course, with explanations as simple, thorough, and engaging as possible.
