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  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  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.
