Title  Gravity: Newtonian, PostNewtonian, Relativistic 
Author(s)  Eric Poisson ;Clifford M. Will 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2014. 
Description  xiv, 780p. 
Abstract Note  This textbook explores approximate solutions to general relativity and their consequences. It offers a unique presentation of Einstein's theory by developing powerful methods that can be applied to astrophysical systems. Beginning with a uniquely thorough treatment of Newtonian gravity, the book develops postNewtonian and postMinkowskian approximation methods to obtain weakfield solutions to the Einstein field equations. The book explores the motion of selfgravitating bodies, the physics of gravitational waves, and the impact of radiative losses on gravitating systems. It concludes with a brief overview of alternative theories of gravity. Ideal for graduate courses on general relativity and relativistic astrophysics, the book examines reallife applications, such as planetary motion around the Sun, the timing of binary pulsars, and gravitational waves emitted by binary black holes. Text boxes explore related topics and provide historical context, and over 100 exercises present challenging tests of the material covered in the main text.

Title  Gravitation and spacetime 
Author(s)  Hans C. Ohanian;Remo Ruffini 
Edition  3rd. 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2013. 
Description  xvi, 528p. 
Abstract Note  The third edition of this classic textbook is a quantitative introduction for advanced undergraduates and graduate students. It gently guides students from Newton's gravitational theory to special relativity, and then to the relativistic theory of gravitation. General relativity is approached from several perspectives: as a theory constructed by analogy with Maxwell's electrodynamics, as a relativistic generalization of Newton's theory, and as a theory of curved spacetime. The authors provide a concise overview of the important concepts and formulas, coupled with the experimental results underpinning the latest research in the field. Numerous exercises in Newtonian gravitational theory and Maxwell's equations help students master essential concepts for advanced work in general relativity, while detailed spacetime diagrams encourage them to think in terms of fourdimensional geometry. Featuring comprehensive reviews of recent experimental and observational data, the text concludes with chapters on cosmology and the physics of the Big Bang and inflation.

Title  Gravitationalwave physics and astronomy: An introduction to theory, experiment and data analysis 
Author(s)  Jolien D. E. Creighton ;Warren G. Anderson 
Publication  Weinheim , WileyVCH, 2011 . 
Description  xiv, 375p. 
Abstract Note  This most uptodate, onestop reference combines coverage of both theory and observational techniques, with introductory sections to bring all readers up to the same level. Written by outstanding researchers directly involved with the scientific program of the Laser Interferometer GravitationalWave Observatory (LIGO), the book begins with a brief review of general relativity before going on to describe the physics of gravitational waves and the astrophysical sources of gravitational radiation. Further sections cover gravitational wave detectors, data analysis, and the outlook of gravitational wave astronomy and astrophysics.

Title  Physics of black holes: A guided tour 
Author(s)  E. Papantonopoulos (ed.) 
Publication  Berlin, Springer, 2009. 
Description  xvi, 511p. 
Abstract Note  Black Holes are still considered to be among the most mysterious and fascinating objects in our universe. Awaiting the era of gravitational astronomy, much progress in theoretical modeling and understanding of classical and quantum black holes has already been achieved.
The present volume serves as a tutorial, highlevel guided tour through the blackhole landscape: information paradox and blackhole thermodynamics, numerical simulations of blackhole formation and collisions, braneworld scenarios and stability of black holes with respect to perturbations are treated in great detail, as is their possible occurrence at the LHC.
An outgrowth of a topical and tutorial summer school, this extensive set of carefully edited notes has been set up with the aim of constituting an advancedlevel, multiauthored textbook which meets the needs of both postgraduate students and young researchers in the fields of modern cosmology, astrophysics and (quantum) field theory.

Title  Observational cosmology 
Author(s)  Stephen Serjeant 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2010. 
Description  324p. 
Abstract Note  Providing a comprehensive and uptodate treatment of observational cosmology, this advanced undergraduate textbook enables students to use quantitative physical methods to understand the Universe. The textbook covers recent developments such as precision cosmology and the concordance cosmological model, inflation, gravitational lensing, the extragalactic farinfrared and Xray backgrounds, downsizing and baryon wiggles. It also explores the future missions and facilities likely to dominate cosmological research in the future, including radio, Xray, submillimetrewave and gravitational wave astronomy.
