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  Special relativity: A first encounter 100 years since Einstein : 100 years since Einstein 
Author(s)  Giulini Domenico 
Publication  Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2011. 
Description  viii, 168p. 
Abstract Note  Special relativity provides the foundations of our knowledge of space and time. Without it, our understanding of the world, and its place in the universe, would be unthinkable. This book gives a concise, elementary, yet exceptionally modern, introduction to special relativity. It is a gentle yet serious 'first encounter', in that it conveys a true understanding rather than purely reports the basic facts. Only very elementary mathematical knowledge is needed to master it (basic highschool maths), yet it will leave the reader with a sound understanding of the subject.
Special Relativity: A First Encounter starts with a broad historical introduction and motivation of the basic notions. The central chapters are dedicated to special relativity, mainly following Einstein's historical route. Later chapters turn to various applications in all parts of physics and everyday life. Unlike other books on the subject, the current status of the experimental foundations of special relativity is accurately reported and the experiments explained. This book will appeal to anyone wanting a introduction to the subject, as well as being background reading for students beginning a course in physics.
Features
Gentle introduction into a field of wide general interest
Well explained, selfcontained and compact
Prerequisites limited to elementary highschool mathematics
Unique in being fully uptodate regarding experimental foundations
