Revue de presse

Review from previous edition This is a great time to have published a fresh new undergraduate text on relativity and cosmology...this is an excellent textbook which this reviewer would rate as the text of choice for a course on relativity and cosmology aimed at physics and astronomy undergraduates. (American Journal of Physics)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Einstein's general theory of relativity is introduced in this advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate level textbook. Topics include special relativity, in the formalism of Minkowski's four-dimensional space-time, the principle of equivalence, Riemannian geometry and tensor analysis, Einstein field equation, as well as many modern cosmological subjects, from primordial inflation and cosmic microwave anisotropy to the dark energy that propels an accelerating universe. The author presents the subject with an emphasis on physical examples and simple applications without the full tensor apparatus. The reader first learns how to describe curved spacetime. At this mathematically more accessible level, the reader can already study the many interesting phenomena such as gravitational lensing, precession of Mercury's perihelion, black holes, and cosmology. The full tensor formulation is presented later, when the Einstein equation is solved for a few symmetric cases. Many modern topics in cosmology are discussed in this book: from inflation, cosmic microwave anisotropy to the "dark energy" that propels an accelerating universe. Mathematical accessibility, together with the various pedagogical devices (e.g., worked-out solutions of chapter-end problems), make it practical for interested readers to use the book to study general relativity and cosmology on their own.

Il s'agit d'une très bonne introduction à la relativité générale et la cosmologie d'un niveau similaire à "A First Course in General Relativity" de Bernard F. Schutz. La particularité de cet ouvrage est d'aborder la RG dans une première partie sans l'arsenal tensoriel puis de l'introduire progressivement ensuite. Je trouve que cette approche en deux temps est originale et fonctionne bien. J'ai pris beaucoup de plaisir à sa lecture.

Excellent Material to begin with and test yourself. 25 février 2005
Par Darran - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I'm a second year astrophysics student from Ireland.

Recently I've tried to learn the Mathematics of General Relativity in detail, outside of my course and have bought numerous books in the process.

In my opinion this book and "A First Course in General Relativity by Bernard F. Schutz" are perfect complementary texts to learn the main basis of General Relativity on your own.

The author has provided an unbelievable amount of questions and not a single one of them is pointless exercise.

The book is Divided into three sections:

Part 1: Metric description of Space-Time

Very well written intro to General Relativity which delves into Black Holes and Mercury's Orbit, without the full on Field Equation and Tensors.

Part 2: Cosmology

Still keeping to the metric description of space-time, cosmology is introduced. The mathematics of concepts like the closed and open universes are explained really well.

Part 3: Full Tensor Formulism

I was able to learn Tensors from this, using Chapter 3 from Schutz's book as a companion.

The questions at the end of each chapter really test your knowledge and after reading this you will be able to manipulate the field equation for simple cases and move onto more advanced books if you wish.

Best intro to GR for those with undergrad math/phys background 14 février 2012
Par Anthony T. Lam - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Let me preface this review by saying I majored in physics and finished college 14 years ago. I've always wanted to study GR but went to dental school right after college and so never got the chance. With the latest developments in cosmology, ie, dark flow, dark energy, dark matter, I finally couldn't suppress my curiosity any longer. The framework for understanding cosmology is GR.

I own the other GR books by Hartle, Schutz and Carroll. Each of them is more a textbook to accompany a lecture course than one for the self-taught crowd.

This book reads more like a novel. The author begins with why Einstein tackled the problem of generalizing special relativity and why that generalization would also be a theory of gravity (Equivalence Principle). The book includes a good intro to special relativiy (SR) at the intermediate college level. This is followed by Minkowski's spacetime which is a deeper mathematical description of SR. From there, the next few chapters elucidate on the Metric tensor and the curvature of spacetime.

After you've learned the Metric, there is a chapter on black holes and 3 chapters on cosmology (expanding universe, inflation, cosmic microwave background, the cosmological constant and how it can be used to take into account dark matter and dark energy, and much more). I particularly enjoyed the cosmology part of the book. It gives you a taste of how modern physicists are using GR to tackle the biggest questions in cosmology. And it gives you a break to absorb the theory before going deeper mathematically.

The final part of the book gives a complete treatment of GR using tensors and ends with a chapter on gravity waves. This is the most difficult part of the book but as with the rest of the book, everything is well explained and there are no gaps in logic that would otherwise frustrate the self-taught.

You must be willing to do some of the problems at the ends of each chapter. To get the most out of this book, you should read it with pencil and paper in hand. Solutions to the more difficult problems are provided in the back of the book which is great pedagogically.

I would rank this up there with Shankar's QM and Griffiths' Intro to EM. It is by far the best intro book on GR out there.

Best introduction to GR available! 15 août 2011
Par Chris J. - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The best introduction to General and Special Relativity I have ever read! I got frustrated trying to self study from Schutz, Hartle and Carroll simply because there was no way to check if I was doing the exercises correctly. They are all well written books, but if you want to learn GR on your own this is the book to start with (Although, it doesn't hurt to have them as a supplement). Most answers are included to the exercises and there are plenty of worked examples.

The layout of the book is very close to that of Hartle. There are boxes that stray a bit from the main text to go into more detail or to work out an example.

He also walks you through the process of showing that Maxwell's equations are invariant under the Lorentz transformation, which I found particularly interesting because all of the other introductory books that I have read (If I remember correctly) neglect this, or take it as a given that you have seen this before.

At half the price of other books on GR in the same category, there really is no reason why you shouldn't add this one to your collection. Especially if you are learning the subject on your own.

Learning general relativity has always been a dream of mine. This book made it possible for me to learn GR on my own. A dream come true!

Intermediate level, with clear presentation, lots of graphics and exercises, ideal for self-study. In one word, excellent.
