TitleGravitation and spacetime
Author(s)Hans C. Ohanian;Remo Ruffini
Edition3rd.
PublicationCambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2013.
Descriptionxvi, 528p.
Abstract NoteThe 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 four-dimensional 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.

TitleSpecial relativity: A first encounter 100 years since Einstein : 100 years since Einstein
Author(s)Giulini Domenico
PublicationOxford, Oxford University Press, 2011.
Descriptionviii, 168p.
Abstract NoteSpecial 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 high-school 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, self-contained and compact Prerequisites limited to elementary high-school mathematics Unique in being fully up-to-date regarding experimental foundations

TitleEinstein and the special theory of relativity
Author(s)Ajoy Ghatak
Edition2nd. (Acc#025977)
PublicationNew Delhi, Viva Books, 2011.
Descriptionxxi, 141p.+with DVD, F: 016319
Abstract NoteSpecial Theory of Relativity is considered as one of the major revolutions of the twentieth century, the second one being the ‘quantum theory’. Roger Penrose wrote: ‘Albert Einstein had such extraordinary deep perceptions of the workings of Nature that he laid foundation stones for both of these twentieth century revolutions in the single year of 1905.’ Since Einstein is considered as one of the supreme intellects of all time, in Chapter 1 I have given his brief life sketch. In the following chapters, I have tried to explain (in an easy-to-understand manner) the basic physics and the fascinating consequences of the Special Theory of Relativit

TitleSpecial relativity: From Einstein to strings
Author(s)Patricia M. Schwarz;John H. Schwarz
PublicationCambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2004.
Contents NoteThe book is about special theory of relativity. This theory overthrew the classical view of space and time as distinct and absolute entities that provide the backdrop on which physical reality is superimposed. In special relativity space and time must be viewed together (as spacetime) to make sense of the constancy of the speed of light and the structure of Maxwell's electromagnetic theory. The book is divided into two parts - entitled 'Fundamentals' and 'Advanced Topics'. The first part gives a detailed explanation of special relativity. The second part of the book includes advanced topics that illustrate how relativity has impacted subsequent developments in theoretical physics upto and including modern work on superstring theory.
