Title  Gravitational waves in physics and astrophysics: An artisan's guide 
Author(s)  M. Coleman Miller;Nicolas Yunes 
Publication  Bristol, Institute of Physics Publishing, 2021. 
Abstract Note  The direct detection of gravitational waves in 2015 has initiated a new era of gravitational wave astronomy, which has already paid remarkable dividends in our understanding of astrophysics and gravitational physics. Aimed at advanced undergraduates and graduate students, this book introduces gravitational waves and its many applications to cosmology, nuclear physics, astrophysics and theoretical physics. The material is presented in a pedagogical way, through Fermi estimates, and detailed explanations and discussions. The student will not only learn what gravitational waves are and how they are produced, but also how they can be used to learn about astrophysical phenomena and cosmological observations, to investigate the interior of neutron stars, and to test general relativity when black holes and neutron stars collide.

Title  Physics of gammaray bursts 
Author(s)  Bing Zhang 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2019. 
Description  xix, 579p. 
Abstract Note  Gammaray bursts (GRBs) are the most luminous explosions in the universe, which within seconds release energy comparable to what the Sun releases in its entire lifetime. The field of GRBs has developed rapidly and matured over the past decades. Written by a leading researcher, this text presents a thorough treatment of every aspect of the physics of GRBs. It starts with an overview of the field and an introduction to GRB phenomenology. After laying out the basics of relativity, relativistic shocks, and leptonic and hadronic radiation processes, the volume covers all topics related to GRBs, including a general theoretical framework, afterglow and prompt emission models, progenitor, central engine, multimessenger aspects (cosmic rays, neutrinos, and gravitational waves), cosmological connections, and broader impacts on fundamental physics and astrobiology. It is suitable for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and experienced researchers in the field of GRBs and highenergy astrophysics in general.

Title  Numerical relativity: Solving Einstein's Equations on the Computer 
Author(s)  Thomas W. Baumgarte ;Stuart L. Shapiro 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2010. 
Description  xviii, 698p. 
Abstract Note  Aimed at students and researchers entering the field, this pedagogical introduction to numerical relativity will also interest scientists seeking a broad survey of its challenges and achievements. Assuming only a basic knowledge of classical general relativity, the book develops the mathematical formalism from first principles, and then highlights some of the pioneering simulations involving black holes and neutron stars, gravitational collapse and gravitational waves. The book contains 300 exercises to help readers master new material as it is presented. Numerous illustrations, many in color, assist in visualizing new geometric concepts and highlighting the results of computer simulations. Summary boxes encapsulate some of the most important results for quick reference. Applications covered include calculations of coalescing binary black holes and binary neutron stars, rotating stars, colliding star clusters, gravitational and magnetorotational collapse, critical phenomena, the generation of gravitational waves, and other topics of current physical and astrophysical significance.

Title  Relativistic astrophysics of the transient universe : gravitation, hydrodynamics and radiation 
Author(s)  Maurice H.P.M. Van Putten, Korea Institute for Advanced Study, Amir Levinson, Tel Aviv University 
Description  1 online resource (xx, 333 pages) : digital, PDF file(s) 
Abstract Note  In this decade, the transient universe will be mapped out in great detail by the emerging widefield multiwavelength surveys, and neutrino and gravitationalwave detectors, promising to probe the astronomical and physical origin of the most extreme relativistic sources. This volume introduces the physical processes relevant to the source modeling of the transient universe. Ideal for graduate students and researchers in astrophysics, this book gives a unified treatment of relativistic flows associated with compact objects, their dissipation and emission in electromagnetic, hadronic and gravitational radiation. After introducing the source classes, the authors set out various mechanisms for creating magnetohydodynamic outflows in winds, jets and blast waves and their radiation properties. They then go on to discuss properties of accretion flows around rotating black holes and their gravitational wave emission from wave instabilites with implications for the emerging gravitational wave experiments. Graduate students and researchers can gain an understanding of data analysis for gravitationalwave data
