My library Help Advanced Book Search. My version of book was better than online pdf version available which have a problems in printing This was the main book theoretically for my GR class but it is good for my for introducing k-calculus which I found it very intuitive way for constructing special relativity theory But this was from books which leaves most work in derivations for you and this is the most thing i hate for a textbook.
Images of Time George Jaroszkiewicz. It is unrivalled in forming the basis of the way we view the universe and the many surprises that the theory has in store — the characteristics of black holes, the prospect of detecting gravitational waves, and the sheer scope and profundity of current cosmology excite all students relativitj rel Inerno is little doubt that Einstein’s theory of relativity captures the imagination. This is a fine book which I have added to the recommended bibliography for my courses; colleagues at other universities are advised not to overlook it.

General Relativity from a Variation Principle Anand rated it really liked it May 16, It does tend to give up on the exercises a bit toward the later chapters and just makes you do all the calculations that were skipped in repativity text.
The Schwarzschild Solution Charged Black Holes Extremely helpful are more than figures, illustrating subjects which in gelativity cases are difficult to imagine This book is not yet featured on Listopia.
The Schwarzschild Solution As a result, this book will make an excellent first course for any student coming to the subject for the first time. Request an Inspection Copy.

Introducing Einstein’s Relativity – R. d’Inverno – Oxford University Press
Books by Ray d’Inverno. A bit outdated on the final chapters about Cosmology, but other than that found it a great introduction to tensorial calculus and general relativity. The Structure of the Field Equations Throughout, the author has included numerous exercises of varying degrees of difficulty to illustrate and extend the ideas covered. Afterintroducing the special theory of relativity, the basic field equations of gravitation are derived and discussed carefully as a prelude to first solving them in simple cases and then exploring the three main areas of application.
There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Important equations are highlighted in boxes and the reader does not have to wade through an undifferentiated mass of tensor calculus. Rita Franco rated it really liked it Dec 25, Non-Rotating Black Holes Indeed, the book follows Einstein in that it introduces the theory very much from a physical point of view.

The book has a large, reader-friendly format, with a lot of illustrations. Einstein’s theory of relativity is undoubtedly one of the greatest achievements of the human mind.
