This popular book is downloaded over 40 times per year and guarantees to be captivating and surprising on every page. First, the book introduces special relativity in a simple way. What does "relativity" mean? This is an introduction to Einstein's theories of special and general relativity. This text makes relativity particularly easy and. List of books in category "Theory of Relativity and Gravitation" 1. Spacetime and Geometry: An Introduction to General Relativity. Special Relativity and Classical Field Theory. Basic Books. Leonard Susskind, Art Friedman. Year: Language: english. A search query can be a title of the book, a name of the author, ISBN or anything else.

This first-year, graduate-level text and reference book covers the fundamental concepts and twenty-first-century applications of six major areas of classical physics that every masters- or PhD-level physicist should be exposed to, but often isn’t: statistical physics, optics (waves of all sorts), elastodynamics, fluid mechanics, plasma physics, and special and general relativity and . The main goal of this document is to propose a big picture of gravitation, where Einstein's relativity arises as a natural increment to Newton's theory. It is designed for students who do not necessarily have prior knowledge about relativity. ( views) The Quantum Mechanics of Cosmology by James B. Hartle - ,

This book contains contributions from the Spanish Relativity Meeting, ERE , held in Guimarães, Portugal, September It features more than 70 papers on a range of topics in general relativity and gravitation, from mathematical cosmology, numerical relativity and black holes to string theory and quantum gravity. Written by a well-known author in the field, this book presents a modern understanding of the universe based on relativity, quantum physics and their elusive combination. It introduces the crucial theoretical ingredients in an accessible way, starting from the physics of Newton and developing subsequent theories all the way to the modern enigma.

Martin, General Relativity: A First Course For Physicists. Classical relativity (defined initially by Galileo Galilei and refined by Sir Isaac Newton) involves a simple transformation between a moving object and an observer in another inertial frame of you are walking in a moving train, and someone stationery on the ground is watching, your speed relative to the observer will be the sum of your speed relative to the train and the.

The problems with classical physics led to the development of Quantum Mechanics and Special Relativity. Some of the problems leading to the development of Quantum Mechanics are listed here.

Black Body Radiation: Classical physics predicted that hot objects would instantly radiate away all their heat into electromagnetic waves. In such an early epoch the classical solutions of the Friedmann equations are no longer adequate and we therefore develop a quantum theory of the very early universe.

Since the quantum cosmology is a highly speculative theory, the presentation in this chapter is limited to a few introductory topics. Please take this page in conjunction with the Part III Guide to Courses Relativity and Gravitation section.
