Magnetohydrodynamicswaves and shock waves in curved spacetime
by
André Lichnerowicz(
Book
)
9 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume presents a unified theory of shock waves corresponding to gravitational and electromagnetic fields and to magnetohydrodynamics in the context of general relativity. The common tool employed is provided by tensor distribution  an approach which has been systematically developed by the author since 1962. One remarkable result is that this yields a complete theory of magnetohydrodynamic shock waves, which can also be applied to the treatment of pulsars. The same method is also applicable to the quantization of some physical fields in curved spacetime. This, too, is discussed in the book. For graduate students and researchers in mathematical physics and theoretical astrophysics

Physics on manifolds : proceedings of the international colloquium in honour of Yvonne ChoquetBruhat, Paris, June 35, 1992
by
M Flato(
Book
)
7 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The role of the geometry of manifolds in spacetime physics, and that of functional analysis in quantum mechanics and quantum field theory have become increasingly important. This is particularly true in the study of the global behaviour of solutions of differential systems on manifolds, and their implications to general relativity.<br/> Yvonne ChoquetBruhat has contributed much to this exciting area of mathematical physics, and her work on the existence of solutions to Einstein's equations on differential manifolds of a general type has subsequently stimulated and inspired much important research. She has also played a pioneering role in the study of global problems, especially in gauge field theory and supergravity, and in the development of a theory of asymptotic gravitational and electromagnetic waves.<br/> The various contributions appearing in this volume, authored by eminent scientists, illustrate the latest developments in the many areas of contemporary physics which have greatly benefited from ChoquetBruhat's work and influence.<br/> For mathematical physicists with an interest in relativity, quantum mechanics and field theory. <br/>
