About this title

Synopsis:

This landmark text offers a rigorous full-year graduate level course on gravitation physics, teaching students to:
· Grasp the laws of physics in flat spacetime
· Predict orders of magnitude
· Calculate using the principal tools of modern geometry
· Predict all levels of precision
· Understand Einstein's geometric framework for physics
· Explore applications, including pulsars and neutron stars, cosmology, the Schwarzschild geometry and gravitational collapse, and gravitational waves
· Probe experimental tests of Einstein's theory
· Tackle advanced topics such as superspace and quantum geometrodynamics
 
The book offers a unique, alternating two-track  pathway through the subject:
· In many chapters, material focusing on basic physical ideas is designated as
Track 1. These sections together make an appropriate one-term advanced/graduate level course (mathematical prerequisites: vector analysis and simple partial-differential equations). The book is printed to make it easy for readers to identify these sections.
· The remaining Track 2 material provides a wealth of advanced topics instructors can draw from to flesh out a two-term course, with Track 1 sections serving as prerequisites.

From the Back Cover:

"Gravitation is a classic."--David Spergel, Princeton University

"Gravitation is the encyclopedic, definitive exposition of general relativity as of 1970. Any serious researcher of general relativity will want to have this book at hand."--Andrew Hamilton, University of Colorado, Boulder

"Gravitation has been a very influential book in the field, and it gives a remarkably thorough treatment of what's relevant in general relativity today."--Frans Pretorius, Princeton University

"This book is considered the Bible for everyone in the field of gravitation."--Alberto Vecchio, University of Birmingham
