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  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  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.
