Essential relativity : special, general, and cosmological by Wolfgang Rindler( Book )
42 editions published between 1969 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 1,324 libraries worldwide
Relativistic cosmology has in recent years become one of the most exciting and active branches of current research. In conference after conference the view is expressed that cosmology today is where particle physics was forty years ago, with major discoveries just waiting to happen. Also gravitational wave detectors, presently under construction or in the testing phase, promise to open up an entirely novel field of physics. The book's basic purpose is to make relativity come alive conceptually. Hence the emphasis on the foundations and the logical subtleties rather than on the mathematics or the detailed experiments per se
Relativity special, general, and cosmological by Wolfgang Rindler( file )
27 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 1,174 libraries worldwide
"This work is a considerable amplification and modernization of the author's earlier Essential Relativity. It aims to bring the challenge and excitement of modern relativity and cosmology at a rigorous mathematical level within the reach of advanced undergraduates and beginning graduates, while containing enough new material to interest lecturers and researchers." "The book's basic purpose is to make relativity come alive conceptually. Hence the emphasis on the foundations and the logical subtleties rather than on the mathematics or the detailed experiments per se. Aided by some 300 exercises, the book promotes a deep understanding and the confidence to tackle any fundamental relativistic problem. Following a critical overview of the whole field, special-relativistic kinematics is presented three dimensionally before the mathematical level gradually rises. Four vectors precede mechanics, four tensors precede Maxwell theory, and two of the eight chapters on general relativity roll by before general tensors are needed. Three 'easy' chapters on cosmology round off the work."--Jacket
