Highlights in gravitation and cosmology : proceedings of the International Conference on Gravitation and Cosmology, Goa, India, 14-19 December 1987 by B. R Iyer( Book )
13 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 206 libraries worldwide
Gravitation, gauge theories and the early universe by B. R Iyer( Book )
9 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 150 libraries worldwide
This book evolved out of some one hundred lectures given by twenty experts at a special instructional conference sponsored by the University Grants Commis sion, India. It is pedagogical in style and self-contained in several interrelated areas of physics which have become extremely important in present-day theoretical research. The articles begin with an introduction to general relativity and cosmology as well as particle physics and quantum field theory. This is followed by reviews of the standard gauge models of high-energy physics, renormalization group and grand unified theories. The concluding parts of the book comprise discussions in current research topics such as problems of the early universe, quantum cosmology and the new directions towards a unification of gravitation with other forces. In addition, special concise treatments of mathematical topics of direct relevance are also included. The content of the book was carefully worked out for the mutual education of students and research workers in general relativity and particle physics. This ambitious programe consequently necessitated the involvement of a number of different authors. However, care has been taken to ensure that the material meshes into a unified, cogent and readable book. We hope that the book will serve to initiate and guide a student in these different areas of investigation starting from first principles and leading to the exciting current research problems of an interdisciplinary nature in the context of the origin and structure of the universe
Geometry, fields and cosmology : techniques and applications by B. R Iyer( Book )
12 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 95 libraries worldwide
This volume is based on the lectures given at the First Inter-University Graduate School on Gravitation and Cosmology organized by IUCAA, Pune, India. The material offers a firm mathematical foundation for a number of subjects including geometrical methods for physics, quantum field theory methods and relativistic cosmology. It brings together the most basic and widely used techniques of theoretical physics today. A number of specially selected problems with hints and solutions have been added to assist the reader in achieving mastery of the topics. Audience: The style of the book is pedagogical and should appeal to graduate students and research workers who are beginners in the study of gravitation and cosmology or related subjects such as differential geometry, quantum field theory and the mathematics of physics. This volume is also recommended as a textbook for courses or for self-study
Black holes, gravitational radiation, and the universe : essays in honor of C.V. Vishveshwara by B. R Iyer( Book )
8 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 94 libraries worldwide
This volume assesses research on black holes and gravitational radiation and their implications in understanding this mysterious universe. Thirty-two articles by experts of international standing weave separate threads into the majestic black hole tapestry and bring together a broad view of past achievements, current progress and future prospects. Pedagogic in nature, the volume is a tribute to C.V. Vishveshwara, whose pioneering contribution to studies of black holes is universally recognised. It leads the reader along the seemingly innocuous trail that began in the sixties, through today, to the future, and attempts to offer a grand panoramic view of black hole physics before the new millennium. Audience: This book will be of interest to research physicists and to mathematicians whose work involves relativity and gravitation, theoretical astrophysics, mathematical physics, active galactic nuclei, cosmology and data analysis

Tradeoffs between static and dynamic lock name space partitioning by B. R Iyer( Book )
2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Dynamic partitioning can exploit the locality property of transactions to effect a reduction in the interprocessor communication overhead. The performance of dynamic partitioned systems degrades with increasing transaction rate (more or faster processors). Increasing the number of classes decreases the locality property of transactions, but trades off against decreased competition for classes among different transactions. In this paper, we extend some earlier work to evaluate this tradeoff. By making two key assumptions to make the model analytically tractable, we are able to predict the average number of interprocessor communications per lock request. The analysis shows that if the number of classes in a dynamic partitioning scheme is chosen appropriately, it performs better than the static partitioning scheme."

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
While we target our work to a parallel computer architecture of shared memory MIMD parallel processors, our results are also likely to be useful for other parallel computer architectures."
