Author: Thomas A. Moore
Brand: Brand: Univ Science Books

A General Relativity Workbook is a textbook intended to support a onesemester undergraduate course on general relativity. Through its unique workbookbased design, it enables students to develop a solid mastery of both the physics and the supporting tensor calculus by guiding them to work through the implications. The mathematics is introduced gradually and in a completely physical context. Each chapter, which is designed to correspond to one class session, involves a short overview of the concepts without obscuring derivations or details, followed by a series of boxes that guide students through the process of working things out. This activelearning approach enables students to develop a more secure mastery of the material than more traditional approaches. More than 350 homework problems support further learning.

Philosophy of Physics: Space and Time (Princeton Foundations of Contemporary Philosophy)
Lowest new price: $10.67
Lowest used price: $17.89
List price: $20.95
Author: Tim Maudlin

This concise book introduces nonphysicists to the core philosophical issues surrounding the nature and structure of space and time, and is also an ideal resource for physicists interested in the conceptual foundations of spacetime theory. Tim Maudlin's broad historical overview examines Aristotelian and Newtonian accounts of space and time, and traces how Galileo's conceptions of relativity and spacetime led to Einstein's special and general theories of relativity. Maudlin explains special relativity with enough detail to solve concrete physical problems while presenting general relativity in more qualitative terms. Additional topics include the Twins Paradox, the physical aspects of the LorentzFitzGerald contraction, the constancy of the speed of light, time travel, the direction of time, and more.  Introduces nonphysicists to the philosophical foundations of spacetime theory
 Provides a broad historical overview, from Aristotle to Einstein

 Background on the author
About the Original Book: In The Order of Time, Carlo Rovelli attempts to shatter our perception of time, providing insight into the true nature of a force that is nowhere near as stable and constant as we perceive it to be. In fact, time is relative to every person and every location in the universe. Seamlessly weaving physics, quantum gravity, history, philosophy, and art into his work, Rovelli has produced a treatise on time unlike anything that has come before it.

The Mechanics of Lorentz Transformations
Lowest new price: $14.54
List price: $15.00
Author: Taha Sochi

The subject of this book is the mechanics of Lorentz transformations which is commonly investigated under the title of special relativity theory. The motive for setting the subject of investigation as Lorentz transformations instead of special relativity is objectivity. However, we also investigate special relativity thoroughly as a possible interpretation of the mechanics of Lorentz transformations. The book originates from a collection of personal notes and tutorials about topics and applications related to modern physics and tensor calculus. The book includes many solved problems as well as extensive sets of exercises whose solutions are available in another book. The book also contains a number of high quality graphic illustrations. A rather thorough index is also added to the book to enable keyword search and provide a useful list for the main technical terms of this subject. Cross referencing is used extensively where these cross references are hyperlinked in the digital versions. The book can be used as a guiding text or as a reference for a first course on the mechanics of Lorentz transformations or as part of a course on modern physics or tensor calculus or even special relativity.

Chapters present complicated material practically and concisely, initially dealing with the mathematical foundations of the theory of relativity, in particular differential geometry. This is followed by a discussion of the Einstein field equations and their various properties. Also given is analysis of the important Schwarzschild solutions, followed by application of general relativity to cosmology. Questions with fully worked answers are provided at the end of each chapter to aid comprehension and guide learning. This pared down textbook is specifically designed for new students looking for a workable, simple presentation of some of the key theories in modern physics and mathematics.

Time Travel: A History
Lowest new price: $11.04
Lowest used price: $6.08
List price: $17.00
Author: James Gleick

Best Books of 2016 BOSTON GLOBE * THE ATLANTIC
From the acclaimed bestselling author of The Information and Chaos comes this enthralling history of time travel—a concept that has preoccupied physicists and storytellers over the course of the last century.
James Gleick delivers a mindbending exploration of time travel—from its origins in literature and science to its influence on our understanding of time itself. Gleick vividly explores physics, technology, philosophy, and art as each relates to time travel and tells the story of the concept's cultural evolutions—from H.G. Wells to Doctor Who, from Proust to Woody Allen. He takes a close look at the porous boundary between science fiction and modern physics, and, finally, delves into what it all means in our own moment in time—the world of the instantaneous, with its allconsuming present and vanishing future.

Relativity Simply Explained (Dover Classics of Science & Mathematics)
Lowest new price: $9.35
Lowest used price: $1.40
List price: $14.95
Author: Martin Gardner

Since the publication of Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity in 1905, the discovery of such astronomical phenomena as quasars, pulsars, and black holes — all intimately connected to relativity — has provoked a tremendous upsurge of interest in the subject. This volume, a revised version of Martin Gardner's earlier Relativity for the Million, brings this fascinating topic up to date. Witty, perceptive, and easily accessible to the general reader, it is one of the clearest and most entertaining introductions to relativity ever written. Mr. Gardner offers lucid explanations of not only the special and general theories of relativity, but of the MichelsonMorley experiment, gravity and spacetime, Mach's principle, the twin paradox, models of the universe, and other topics. A new Postscript, examining the latest developments in the field, and specially written for this edition, is also included. The clarity of the text is especially enhanced by the brilliant graphics of Anthony Ravielli, making this "by far the best layman's account of this difficult subject." — Christian Science Monitor.

Introducing Einstein's Relativity
Lowest new price: $63.10
Lowest used price: $22.39
List price: $133.95
Author: Ray d'Inverno
Brand: imusti

There is little doubt that Einstein's theory of relativity captures the imagination. 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 of relativity. The aim of this textbook is to provide students with a sound mathematical introduction coupled to an understanding of the physical insights needed to explore the subject. The book follows Einstein in that it introduces the basic field equations by discussing the relativistic theory of gravitation from a physics point of view, and the structure on the resulting equations is discussed carefully before going on to their solution in simple settings. The book is designed with two objectives: to familiarize students with the basic ideas and equations of the theory, and to cover three main topics: black holes, gravitational waves, and cosmology. Throughout, the author has included numerous exercises (of varying degrees of difficulty) to illustrate and extend the ideas covered. As a result, this book will make an excellent first course for any student coming to the subject for the first time.
