General Relativity from A to B by Robert Geroch
Book DescriptionFrom A to B may not seem a great distance to travel, but, as Robert Geroch demonstrates in his conversational style, our perception of distance is always relative to our position in space. For persons situated outside the speculative realms of physics and mathematics, Geroch's tour from A to B is a thorough introduction to Einstein's theory of general relativity. The early chapters are devoted to the development and modifications the crucial notion of space-time undergoes as it passes through the Aristotelian and Galilean viewpoints. From theories of absolute space and absolute time, Geroch than details modern ideas of a space-time in which neither space nor time is absolute, showing how our everyday conceptions are inappropriate to the physical world in which we live.

Perspectives in Computation, Paperback (September 2009)
Computation is the process of applying a procedure or algorithm to the solution of a mathematical problem. This book covers three broad topics: the computation process and its limitations, the search for computational efficiency, and the role of quantum mechanics in computation.
Mathematical Physics, Paperback (November 1985)» View all books by Robert Geroch
Mathematical Physics is an introduction to such basic mathematical structures as groups, vector spaces, topological spaces, measure spaces, and Hilbert space. Geroch uses category theory to emphasize both the interrelationships among different structures and the unity of mathematics.
