General Relativity: An Introduction to Black Holes, Gravitational Waves, and Cosmology provides readers with a solid understanding of the underlying physical concepts of general relativity. It also shows how they may derive important applications of the theory and is a solid grounding for those wishing to pursue further study. Gravitation is a physics book on Albert Einstein's theory of gravity, written by Charles W. Misner, Kip S. Thorne, and John Archibald Wheeler and originally published by W. H. Freeman and Company in It is frequently abbreviated MTW after its authors' last names.

The General Relativity lectures are mostly unchanged from year to year, as well as the Gravitational Physics lectures, but it is nice that there are many years to choose from. Neil Toruk's wonderful lectures are under "Relativity" the "core" tab of every year, which provide a nice basis for study into GR. This book provides a completely revised and expanded version of the previous classic edition ‘General Relativity and Relativistic Astrophysics’. In Part I the foundations of general relativity are thoroughly developed, while Part II is devoted to tests of .

The book presents the general relativity as a scheme for describing the gravitational field and the equations it obeys. Starting from physical motivations, curved coordinates are introduced, and then the notion of an affine connection field is added. Gravity is not a force. It is the warping of space-time caused by the presence of mass-energy. Motion through warped space-time has the appearance of a force. Theory and experiment in gravitational physics, by Clifford Will, Cambridge U., Excellent discussions of all experiments known at that time, with mathematics only as needed. Problem book in relativity and gravitation, by Lightman, Press, Price and Teukolsky, Princeton U., Founded in , General Relativity and Gravitation has been the first journal dedicated to all aspects of the classical theory of general relativity. Published under the auspices of the International Society on General Relativity and Gravitation (ISGRG), it presents the most important aspects of modern gravitational physics.

This book covers the following topics: Physics in a Gravitational Field and General Covariance, General Relativity and Geometry, Dynamics of the Gravitational Field, General Relativity and the Solar System, Black Holes, Cosmology, Varia, Kaluza-Klein Theory. Author(s): Matthias Blau. General Relativity. Now that the specifics of Special Relativity have been covered, it’s time to move to the godfather of relativity theory, otherwise known as General Relativity. General Relativity (GR) is an all-encompassing theory that fully describes the relationship between space, time and gravity. The theory of relativity is amazing and important. The Aim of this book is to introduce people without a strong physics (or even scientific) background to the Special and General Theories of relativity and now I want to read other similar Scientific books/5.   These effects, known as gravitational time dilation, can be explained by Einstein's theory of general relativity. Relativity in daily life. Relativity seems strange, because it goes against common.
