Title  The gravitational millionbody problem 
Author(s)  Douglas Heggie, Piet Hut 
Description  1 online resource (xiv, 357 pages) : digital, PDF file(s) 
Abstract Note  The globular star clusters of the Milky Way contain hundreds of thousands of stars held together by gravitational interactions, and date from the time when the Milky Way was forming. This 2003 text describes the theory astronomers need for studying globular star clusters. The gravitational millionbody problem is an idealised model for understanding the dynamics of a cluster with a million stars. After introducing the millionbody problem from various viewpoints, the book systematically develops the tools needed for studying the millionbody problems in nature, and introduces the most important theoretical models. Including a comprehensive treatment of fewbody interactions, and developing an intuitive but quantitative understanding of the threebody problem, the book introduces numerical methods, relevant software, and current problems. Suitable for graduate students and researchers in astrophysics and astronomy, this text also has important applications in the fields of theoretical physics, computational science and mathematics

Title  Exploring the invisible universe: From Black Holes to Superstrings 
Author(s)  Belal E. Baaquie;Frederick H. Willeboordse 
Publication  New Jersey, World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 2015. 
Description  xvi, 471p. 
Abstract Note  Book covers the gamut of topics in advanced modern physics and provides extensive and well substantiated answers to these questions and many more. Discussed in a nontechnical, yet also nontrivial manner, are topics dominated by invisible things  such as Black Holes and Superstrings as well as Fields, Gravitation, the Standard Model, Cosmology, Relativity, the Origin of Elements, Stars and Planetary Evolution, and more. Just giving the answer, as so many books do, is really not telling anything at all. To truly answer the "why" questions of nature, one needs to follow the chain of reasoning that scientists have used to come to the conclusions they have. This book does not shy away from difficulttoexplain topics by reducing them to oneline answers and power phrases suitable for a popular talk show. The explanations are rigorous and straight to the point. This book is rarely mathematical without being afraid, however, to use elementary mathematics when called for. In order to achieve this, a large number of detailed figures, specially developed for this book and found nowhere else, convey insights that otherwise might either be inaccessible or need lengthy and difficulttofollow explanations.

Title  Theory of gravitational interactions 
Author(s)  Maurizio Gasperini 
Publication  Milan, Springer, 2013. 
Description  1 online resource 
Abstract Note  This reference textbook is an uptodate and selfcontained introduction to the theory of gravitational interactions. The first part of the book follows the traditional presentation of general relativity as a geometric theory of the macroscopic gravitational field. A second, advanced part then discusses the deep analogies (and differences) between a geometric theory of gravity and the gauge theories of the other fundamental interactions. This fills a gap which is present in the context of the traditional approach to general relativity, and which usually makes students puzzled about the role of gravity. The necessary notions of differential geometry are reduced to the minimum, leaving more room for those aspects of gravitational physics of current phenomenological and theoretical interest, such as the properties of gravitational waves, the gravitational interactions of spinors, and the supersymmetric and higherdimensional generalization of the Einstein equations. Theory of Gravitational Interactions will be of particular value to undergraduate students pursuing a theoretical or astroparticle curriculum. It can also be used by those teaching related subjects, by PhD students and young researchers working in different scientific sectors but wishing to enlarge their spectrum of interests, and, in general, by all scholars interested in the modern aspects and problems of gravitational interaction

Title  Bryce DeWitt's lectures on gravitation 
Author(s)  Steven M. Christensen (ed.) 
Publication  Heidelberg, Springer, 2011. 
Description  1 online resource (xi, 287 p.) : ill 
Abstract Note  Bryce DeWitt, a student of Nobel Laureate Julian Schwinger, was himself one of the towering figures in 20th century physics, particularly renowned for his seminal contributions to quantum field theory, numerical relativity and quantum gravity. In late 1971, DeWitt gave a course on gravitation at Stanford University, leaving almost 400 pages of detailed handwritten notes. Written with clarity and authority, and edited by his former student Steven Christensen, these timeless lecture notes, containing material or expositions not found in any other textbooks, are a gem to be discovered or rediscovered by anyone seriously interested in the study of gravitational physicsP. 4 of cover
