Relativity by Wolfgang Rindler

Book Description

Relativistic cosmology has in recent years become one of the most exciting and active branches of current research. In conference after conference the view is expressed that cosmology today is where particle physics was forty years ago, with major discoveries just waiting to happen. Also gravitational wave detectors, presently under construction or in the testing phase, promise to open up an entirely novel field of physics. It is to take into account such recent developments, as well as to improve the basic text, that this second edition has been undertaken. The most affected is the last part on cosmology, but there are smaller additions, corrections, and additional exercises throughout. The books basic purpose is to make relativity come alive conceptually. Hence the emphasis on the foundations and the logical subtleties rather than on the mathematics or the detailed experiments per se. Aided by some 300 exercises, the book promotes a deep understanding and the confidence to tackle any fundamental relativistic problem.

Books By Author Wolfgang Rindler

Relativity by Wolfgang Rindler Relativity, Paperback (April 2006)

A modern thinking person's guide to all of Einstein's relativity. Full of mathematical rigor, but stressing physical insight, motivation, and clarity of concepts and logic, rather than mere formalism or experimental detail. Over 300 thought-provoking problems.

Introduction to Special Relativity by Wolfgang Rindler Introduction to Special Relativity, Paperback (May 1991)

Second edition of this book intended for undergraduates taking an introductory course on special relativity which is mainly conceptually and mathematically oriented. It assumes no prior knowledge of relativity, and a suitably prepared reader could use it for self-study.

Spinors and Ssace-Time by Wolfgang Rindler Spinors and Ssace-Time, Paperback (April 1988)

Volume 2 introduces the theory of twistors and two-spinors and shows how it can be applied. Includes a comprehensive treatment of the conformal approach to space-time infinity with results on general relativistic mass and angular momentum.

Spinors and Space-Time: Volume 1, Two-Spinor Calculus and Relativistic Fields by Wolfgang Rindler Spinors and Space-Time: Volume 1, Two-Spinor Calculus and Relativistic Fields, Paperback (February 1987)

This volume introduces and systematically develops the calculus of 2-spinors.
