TitleModified gravity: Progresses and Outlook of Theories, Numerical Techniques and Observational Tests
Author(s)Baojiu Li (ed.);Kazuya Koyama (ed.)
PublicationSingapore, World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 2019.
Descriptionx, 313p.
Abstract NoteModified gravity theories have been a main focus of theoretical cosmology research in the past decade or so, and have been quickly developing into a mature research field that attracts attention, interest and effort from both theoretical and observational cosmologists. To be prepared for fully exploiting the future observational data, and to provide a guidance for people who are new to this field, it is useful to have a comprehensive review to summarise the current state of knowledge and to foresee the future developments. This book presents expert reviews on different topics in the field, which are then coordinated and organised in a self-consistent and self-contained manner. It is suitable for graduate students and researchers interested in the frontier research of gravity theories.

TitleBrief history of astronomy and astrophysics
Author(s)Kenneth R. Lang
PublicationNew Jersey, World Scientific, 2018.
Descriptionxiii, 325p.
Abstract NoteThis book traces out the unfolding history of important discoveries in astronomy and astrophysics, and anchors our present understanding of the Universe within the findings and personalities of accomplished astronomers. They have used telescopes and instruments to extend our vision to places that cannot be seen with the unaided eye, discovered a host of unanticipated objects, found out how various parts of the night sky are related, and discovered that the Universe is larger, more complex, and older than has been previously thought. This comprehensive historical approach to the present state of astronomy is a unique aspect of the book.

TitleEinstein Gravity in a Nutshell
Author(s)A. Zee
PublicationPrinceton, Princeton University Press, 2013.
Descriptionxxii, 866p.
Abstract NoteThis unique textbook provides an accessible introduction to Einstein's general theory of relativity, a subject of breathtaking beauty and supreme importance in physics. With his trademark blend of wit and incisiveness, A. Zee guides readers from the fundamentals of Newtonian mechanics to the most exciting frontiers of research today, including de Sitter and anti-de Sitter spacetimes, Kaluza-Klein theory, and brane worlds. Unlike other books on Einstein gravity, this book emphasizes the action principle and group theory as guides in constructing physical theories. Zee treats various topics in a spiral style that is easy on beginners, and includes anecdotes from the history of physics that will appeal to students and experts alike. He takes a friendly approach to the required mathematics, yet does not shy away from more advanced mathematical topics such as differential forms. The extensive discussion of black holes includes rotating and extremal black holes and Hawking radiation. The ideal textbook for undergraduate and graduate students, Einstein Gravity in a Nutshell also provides an essential resource for professional physicists and is accessible to anyone familiar with classical mechanics and electromagnetism. It features numerous exercises as well as detailed appendices covering a multitude of topics not readily found elsewhere.

Title100 years of Einstein's theory of relativity: An Introduction to Gravity and Cosmology
Author(s)C. Sivaram;Kenath Arun;Kiren O.V.
PublicationNew Delhi, Ane Books, 2016.
Descriptionxiv, 225p.
Abstract NoteThis book attempts to give a comprehensive overview of the general theory of relativity including several current developments in both theory and experiment, starting from a brief introduction on special relativity and Newtonian gravity to Einstein's geometrical interpretation of gravity. We have emphasized the accuracy to which GR has been tested in recent years. Cosmology has been discussed elaborately, starting from the early universe to dark matter and dark energy. The appendices elaborate in some detail the tensor algebra required including differential geometry concepts, calculation of curvature etc. Problems are given in every chapter to help understand the topics discussed and to acquire working knowledge of the subject. Even after 100 years, GR is very much an active and exciting area of research with lots of phenomena still to be understood.

TitleUniversal force: Gravity - Creator of Worlds
Author(s)Louis A. Girifalco
PublicationOxford, Oxford University Press, 2014.
Descriptionxx, 297p.
Abstract Note"The Universal Force" conveys the excitement of science and nature's mysteries. It describes gravitation as seen by examining the achievements of those great scientists who have struggled with the seemingly simple facts and managed to extract some truth about the nature of gravity, its origins, and its effects. Gravity is intimately tied up with motion, and therefore with time and space, and is responsible for planetary systems, the evolution of stars and the existence of black holes and the very beginning of the Universe. It is the universal force, and to look at gravity is to look at the deepest aspects of nature. The historical context from Aristotle's teleology through Galileo's conflict with the Church, to Newton's law, and Einstein's curved space time, displays the evolution of the science of gravity as one of the greatest and most fascinating human achievements. Contrary to popular opinion, all important science can be understood by anyone, with or without a scientific background. This book shows that the beauty and mysteries of science can be shared with everyone.

TitlePulling G : human responses to high and low gravity
Author(s)Erik Seedhouse
PublicationNew York, Springer, 2013.
Description1 online resource : ill. (chiefly col.)
Abstract NoteFormula 1 racing drivers, figher pilots, astronauts - G forces are an integral part of their lives- How do racing drivers sustain high G loads and not pass out?- What accelerative forces are unleashed when a fighter pilot ejects from a high-performance jet?- What is it like being launched into space and what are the effects on astronauts living in zero G on board the International Space Station?- How do aircraft simulate zero G?Pulling G gives a unique insight into how G forces affect people working inthe high and low G environments. It examines the risks of high and low acceleration and explains the physiology of surviving in these environments. The history of G-related research is described, together with present-day and future development of methods to cope with the effects of increased and reduced G
