Relativity in modern physics

Author: Nathalie Deruelle; Jean-Philippe Uzan; Patricia de Forcrand-Millard
Publisher: Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2018.
Series: Oxford graduate texts.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This comprehensive textbook on relativity integrates Newtonian physics, special relativity and general relativity into a single book. It emphasizes the deep underlying principles common to them all, yet explains how they are applied in different ways in these three contexts.
