General relativity follows from Einstein’s principle of equivalence: on a local scale it is impossible to distinguish between physical effects due to gravity and those due to y is treated as a geometric phenomenon that arises from the curvature of solution of the field equations that describe general relativity can yield answers to different physical. Semi-Riemannian Geometry With Applications to Relativity by Barrett O'Neill: Exactly what the title says it is. A classic,one of the best books on relativity theory .

Just what the title says, although the typically dry mathematics prose style is here enlivened by frequent opinionated asides about both physics and General Relativity for Mathematicians book (and the state.

Like the original, the focus is on the formalism underlying general relativity, thus there is no physics and virtually no discussion of exact solutions. Wre seriously, the Cauchy problem is not considered. My only defense for such an cmission is that certain cbices have to be made and to do the matter justice muld require another Size: 9MB.

This work was written with as little mathematics as possible and was designed to appeal to an even broader readership, albeit one still somewhat educated in mathematics or physics. Possibly useful as a reference, but the simplifications used to render the presentation compact obscure distinctions that make the book largely worthless to anyone who has not already seen the details before.

I should note that the book may be of more use to Physicists learning general relativity as opposed to Mathematicians learning the subject/5. 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 general relativity and many of its applications. I left math inbut these lecture notes are pretty good for immediate gratification: Page on (PDF download).

There is an old book by Max Born, called Einstein's Theory of Relativity which explains the Special Relativity in great detail without any advanced mathematics and a little bit of General Relativity. It is suitable for those who has not yet started to physics degree or will not, but would like to understand the theory in a deeper and mathematical manner.

This book is comprised of 14 chapters and begins with a review of the principle of equivalence, paying particular attention to the question of the existence of inertial frames in Newtonian mechanics.

The beginnings and foundations of general relativity are then considered, together with. The essential mathematical methods for the formulation of general relativity are presented in Chapters 2 and 3 while more advanced techniques are discussed in Appendices A to C.

Wald believes that this is the best way forward because putting all the mathematical techniques at the beginning of the book would prove to be a major obstruction for Author: Robert Wald. There are a great number of really excellent books on relativity, but no particular book is good for everyone: the reader is as important as that which is being read.

To be honest I imagine that self-learning relativity to be quite difficult. An advanced book which emphasizes global techniques and singularity theorems. Sachs and H. Wu, General Relativity for Mathematicians (Springer-Verlag, ) [***].

Just what the title says, although the typically dry mathematics prose style is here enlivened by frequent opinionated asides about both physics and mathematics (and the state of. This books is written for serious students of relativity, be it applied mathematicians or physicists.

For the people willing to patiently read the book, and learn the details he presents, this book is probably the best preparation to general relativity. One complaint however is the noticeable shortage in exercises/5(73). The essential mathematics of general relativity is differential geometry, the branch of mathematics dealing with smoothly curved surfaces (differentiable manifolds).

The physicist does not need to master all of the subtleties of differential geometry in order to use general relativity. (For those readers who want a deeper exposure to File Size: KB.

General relativity is Einstein's theory of gravity, in which gravitational forces are presented as a consequence of the curvature of spacetime. In general relativity, objects moving under gravitational attraction are merely flowing along the "paths of least resistance" in a curved, non-Euclidean space.

The amount that spacetime curves depends on the matter and energy present in the spacetime. Based on a course given at Oxford over many years, this book is a short and concise exposition of the central ideas of general relativity. Although the original audience was made up of mathematics students, the focus is on the chain of reasoning that leads to the relativistic theory from the analysis of distance and time measurements in the presence of gravity, rather than on the underlying /5(3).

This books is written for serious students of relativity, be it applied mathematicians or physicists. For the people willing to patiently read the book, and learn the details he presents, this book is probably the best preparation to general relativity.

One complaint however is the noticeable shortage in 5/5(5). General Relativity is the classical theory that describes the evolution of systems under the e ect of gravity.

Its history goes back to when Einstein postulated that the laws of gravity can be expressed as a system of equations, the so-called Einstein equations. In order. Einstein's general theory of relativity requires a curved space for the description of the physical world. If one wishes to go beyond superficial discussions of the physical relations involved, one needs to set up precise equations for handling curved space.

The well-established mathematical technique that accomplishes this is clearly described in this classic book by Nobel Laureate P.A.M. Dirac.4/5(6). You should do a search through this section and the book review section, because this has come up several times before.

I suggest Schutz, A First Course in General Relativity, because he does a good job on special relativity and introduces all the neccessary math. Comments on some other books: Rindler, Relativity: Special, General, and.

This excellent book contains almost everything important in pdf relativity in extremely few words. As a mathematician, I find this book far more elegant and mathematically precise than most accounts written by physicists who don't seem to have a proper grasp of the maths/5(27).

On the other hand, if you were a reader looking for more technical information (mathematical foundation of general relativity), I would choose the book "Gravitation" written by Misner, Wheeler y Thorne. This text represents an encyclopedia about general by: General relativity was Einstein’s theory of gravity, ebook inwhich extended special relativity to take into ebook non-inertial frames of reference — areas that are accelerating with respect to each other.

General relativity takes the form of field equations, describing the curvature of space-time and the distribution of matter throughout space-time.
