Title  The GerochHeldPenrose Calculus : Fundamentals and Applications 
Author(s)  Bargue??o, Pedro;Contreras, Ernesto 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XVI, 70 p. 2 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book offers a primer on the fundamentals and applications of the GerochHeldPenrose (GHP) calculus, a powerful formalism designed for spacetimes that occur frequently in the teaching of General Relativity. Specifically, the book shows in detail the power of the calculus when dealing with spherically symmetric spacetimes. After introducing the basics, a new look at all the classical spherically symmetric black hole solutions is given within the GHP formalism. This is then employed to give new insights into the TolmanOppenheimerVolkoff equations for stellar structure, including a derivation of new exact anisotropic fluid solutions. Finally, a rewriting of some essential features of black hole thermodynamics within the GHP formalism is performed. The book is based on the authors' lecture notes, used in their undergraduate and graduate lectures and while supervising their upper undergraduate and graduate students. To fully benefit from this concise primer, readers only need an undergraduate background in general relativity

Title  Regular Black Holes : Towards a New Paradigm of Gravitational Collapse 
Author(s)  Bambi, Cosimo 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2023. 
Description  X, 499 p. 71 illus., 47 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Black holes are one of the most fascinating predictions of general relativity. They are the natural product of the complete gravitational collapse of matter and today we have a body of observational evidence supporting the existence of black holes in the Universe. However, general relativity predicts that at the center of black holes there are spacetime singularities, where predictability is lost and standard physics breaks down. It is widely believed that spacetime singularities are a symptom of the limitations of general relativity and must be solved within a theory of quantum gravity. Since we do not have yet any mature and reliable candidate for a quantum gravity theory, researchers have studied toymodels of singularityfree black holes and of singularityfree gravitational collapses in order to explore possible implications of the yet unknown theory of quantum gravity. This book reviews all main models of regular black holes and nonsingular gravitational collapses proposed in the literature, and discuss the theoretical and observational implications of these scenarios

Title  Physics of Gravitational Waves : Sources and Detection Methods 
Author(s)  Kenath, Arun;Sivaram, Chandra 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  VIII, 56 p. 7 illus., 3 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides a concise introduction to the physics of gravitational waves. It is aimed at graduatelevel students and PhD scholars. Ever since the discovery of gravitational waves in 2016, gravitational wave astronomy has been adding to our understanding of the universe. Gravitational waves have been detected in the past few years from several transient events such as merging stellarmass black holes, binary neutron stars, etc. These waves have frequencies in a band ranging from a few hundred hertz to around a kilohertz to which LIGO type instruments are sensitive. LISA will be sensitive to much lower range of frequencies from SMBH mergers. Apart from these cataclysmic burst events, there are innumerable sources of radiation which are continuously emitting gravitational waves of all frequencies. These include a whole mass range of compact binary and isolated compact objects and close planetary stellar entities. This book discusses the gravitational wave backgroundproduced in typical frequency ranges from such sources emitting over a Hubble time and the fluctuations in the h values measured in the usual devices. Also discussed are the highfrequency thermal background gravitational radiation from hot stellar interiors and newly formed compact objects. The reader will also learn how gravitational waves provide a testing tool for various theories of gravity, i.e. general relativity and extended theories of gravity, and will be the definitive test for general relativity

Title  The First Law of Mechanics in General Relativity & Isochrone Orbits in Newtonian Gravity 
Author(s)  Ramond, Paul 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  XXVI, 393 p. 77 illus., 69 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The thesis tackles two distinct problems of great interest in gravitational mechanics ??? one relativistic and one Newtonian. The relativistic one is concerned with the "first law of binary mechanics", a remarkably simple variational relation that plays a crucial role in the modern understanding of the gravitational twobody problem, thereby contributing to the effort to detect gravitationalwave signals from binary systems of black holes and neutron stars. The work reported in the thesis provides a mathematically elegant extension of previous results to compact objects that carry spin angular momentum and quadrupolar deformations, which more accurately represent astrophysical bodies than mere point particles. The Newtonian problem is concerned with the isochrone problem of celestial mechanics, namely the determination of the set of radial potentials whose bounded orbits have a radial period independent of the angular momentum. The thesis solves this problem completely in a geometrical way and explores its consequence on a variety of levels, in particular with a complete characterisation of isochrone orbits. The thesis is exceptional in the breadth of its scope and achievements. It is clearly and eloquently written, makes excellent use of images, provides careful explanations of the concepts and calculations, and it conveys the author???s personality in a way that is rare in scientific writing, while never sacrificing academic rigor

Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  XIX, 274 p. 50 illus., 1 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book systematically develops the mathematical foundations of the theory of relativity and links them to physical relations. For this purpose, differential geometry on manifolds is introduced first, including differentiation and integration, and special relativity is presented as tensor calculus on tangential spaces. Using Einstein's field equations relating curvature to matter, the relativistic effects in the solar system including black holes are discussed in detail. The text is aimed at students of physics and mathematics and assumes only basic knowledge of classical differential and integral calculus and linear algebra

Title  A Novel Approach to Relativistic Dynamics : Integrating Gravity, Electromagnetism and Optics 
Author(s)  Friedman, Yaakov;Scarr, Tzvi 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  XV, 196 p. 60 illus., 54 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This selfcontained monograph provides a mathematically simple and physically meaningful model which unifies gravity, electromagnetism, optics and even some quantum behavior. The simplicity of the model is achieved by working in the frame of an inertial observer and by using a physically meaningful least action principle. The authors introduce an extension of the Principle of Inertia. This gives rise to a simple, physically meaningful action function. Visualizations of the geometryare obtained by plotting the action function. These visualizations may be used to compare the geometries of different types of fields. Moreover, a new understanding of the energymomentum of a field emerges. The relativistic dynamics derived here properly describes motion of massive and massless objects under the influence of a gravitational and/or an electromagnetic field, and under the influence of isotropic media. The reader will learn how to compute theprecession of Mercury, the deflection of light, and the Shapiro time delay. Also covered is the relativistic motion of binary stars, including the generation of gravitational waves, a derivation of Snell's Law and a relativistic description of spin. We derive a complexvalued prepotential of an electromagnetic field. The prepotential is similar to the wave function in quantum mechanics. The mathematics is accessible to students after standard courses in multivariable calculus and linear algebra. For those unfamiliar with tensors and the calculus of variations, these topics are developed rigorously in the opening chapters. The unifying model presented here should prove useful to upper undergraduate and graduate students, as well as to seasoned researchers

Title  Lorentzian Geometrical Structures with Global Time, Gravity and Electrodynamics 
Author(s)  Poliakovsky, Arkady 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  X, 189 p. 1 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book investigates Lorentzian structures in the fourdimensional spacetime, supplemented either by a covector field of the timedirection or by a scalar field of the global time. Furthermore, it proposes a new metrizable model of gravity. In contrast to the usual General Relativity theory, where all ten components of the symmetric pseudometric are independent variables, the gravity model presented here essentially depends only on a single fourcovector field, and is restricted to have only threeindependent components. However, the author proves that the gravitational field, governed by the proposed model and generated by some massive body, resting and spherically symmetric in some coordinate system, is given by a pseudometric that coincides with the well known Schwarzschild metric from General Relativity. The Maxwell equations and electrodynamics are also investigated in the framework of the proposed model. In particular, the covariant formulation of electrodynamics of moving dielectrics and para/diamagnetic media is derived

Title  Dark Energy : From EFTs to Supergravity 
Author(s)  Cunillera, Francesc 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XVII, 220 p. 22 illus., 11 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book addresses supergravity and supergravitymotivated effective field theories in the context of cosmological model building. Extracting information about quintessence from string theory has attracted much attention in the past few years. The question became more urgent very recently after the possibility of obtaining de Sitter space was called into question. Therefore, there is an interesting debate as to whether de Sitter space or, even, quintessence can be derived from a fundamental theory, string theory or otherwise. This is a very active field of research, and the topics covered in the book render this work very timely. Throughout the book, special care has been taken in demonstrating historical relevance of the field and describing the set of open questions motivating the stateoftheart research. The first few chapters in each part provide a detailed review of standard perturbative and nonperturbative techniques in supergravity model building, as a way to preparethe reader for the more technical and original subsequent chapters. These early chapters also represent a selfcontained review that would be useful for anyone planning to enter this challenging area of study. The subsequent chapters detail research in supergravitymotivated effective field theories, in the first part, and supergravity models, in the second part. One of the important conclusions in this book is that modelling quintessence in perturbative string theory is at least as challenging as modelling de Sitter, placing the wider programme on a collision course with observations

Title  Laser Power Stabilization via Radiation Pressure 
Author(s)  Trad Nery, Marina 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XIX, 154 p. 81 illus., 79 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book offers a comprehensive and complete description of a new scheme to stabilize the power of a laser on a level needed for high precision metrology experiments. The novel aspect of the scheme is sensing power fluctuations via the radiation pressure driven motion they induce on a microoscillator mirror. It is shown that the proposed technique can result in higher signals for power fluctuations than what is achieved by a direct power detection, and also that it enables the generation of a strong bright squeezed beam. The book starts with the basics of power stabilization and an overview on the current state of art. Then, detailed theoretical calculations are performed, and the advantages of the new scheme are highlighted. Finally, a proofofprinciple experiment is described and its results are analyzed in details. The success of the work presented here paves a way for achieving high power stability in future experiments and is of interest for high precision metrology experiments, like gravitational wave detectors, and optomechanical experiments. Nominated as an outstanding PhD thesis by the Gravitational Wave International Committee
