Title  100 years of Einstein's theory of relativity: An Introduction to Gravity and Cosmology

Description  xiv, 225p. 
Abstract Note  This book attempts to give a comprehensive overview of the general theory of relativity including several current developments in both theory and experiment, starting from a brief introduction on special relativity and Newtonian gravity to Einstein's geometrical interpretation of gravity. We have emphasized the accuracy to which GR has been tested in recent years. Cosmology has been discussed elaborately, starting from the early universe to dark matter and dark energy. The appendices elaborate in some detail the tensor algebra required including differential geometry concepts, calculation of curvature etc. Problems are given in every chapter to help understand the topics discussed and to acquire working knowledge of the subject. Even after 100 years, GR is very much an active and exciting area of research with lots of phenomena still to be understood.
