Title  General theory of relativity: A Mathematical Approach 
Author(s)  Farook Rahaman 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2021. 
Description  404pp 
Contents Note  The book aims to expound the general theory of relativity with a mathematical point of view. Catering to the needs of postgraduate students and researchers in the field of astrophysics and mathematical physics, it offers the readers a comprehensive understanding of the advanced topics of the subject matter. It specifically discusses the mathematical foundation of tensor calculus, gives a background of geodesics, Einstein's field equations, linearised gravity, spacetime of spherically symmetric distribution of matter and black holes, and particle and photon orbits in spacetime. Apart from the formulation of general relativity, Lie derivatives and its applications, and causality of spacetime are also discussed in detail. Certain preliminary concepts of extrinsic curvature, Lagrangian formalism of general theory of relativity and 3 + 1 decomposition of spacetime are covered and are provided in the book as appendices.

Title  Structures in the universe by exact methods: Formation, evolution, interactions 
Author(s)  Krzysztof Bolejko;Andrzej Krasinski;Charles Hellaby ;MarieNoelle Celerier 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2009. 
Description  xiii, 242p. 
Series  (Cambridge monographs on mathematical physics) 
Abstract Note  As the structures in our Universe are mapped out on ever larger scales, and with increasing detail, the use of inhomogeneous models is becoming an essential tool for analyzing and understanding them. This book reviews a number of important developments in the application of inhomogeneous solutions of Einstein's field equations to cosmology. It shows how inhomogeneous models can be employed to study the evolution of structures such as galaxy clusters and galaxies with central black holes, and to account for cosmological observations like supernovae dimming, the cosmic microwave background, baryon acoustic oscillations or the dependence of the Hubble parameter on redshift within classical general relativity. Whatever `dark matter' and `dark energy' turn out to be, inhomogeneities exist on many scales and need to be investigated with all appropriate methods. This book is of great value to all astrophysicists and researchers working in cosmology, from graduate students to academic researchers.
