GRAVITY: AN INTRODUCTION TO EINSTEIN'S GENERAL RELATIVITY (pb)2009
Author: HARTLE

Year: 2012
Publisher: PEARSON EDUCATION ASIA

 ABOUT THE TITLE
Einstein s theory of general relativity is a cornerstone of modern physics. It also touches upon a wealth of topics that students find fascinating—black holes warped spacetime gravitational waves and cosmology. Until now it has not been included in the curriculum of many undergraduate physics courses because the required math is too advanced. The aim of this ground-breaking new text is to bring general relativity into the undergraduate curriculum and make this fundamental theory accessible to virtually all physics majors. Using a physics first approach to the subject renowned relativist James Hartle provides a fluent and accessible introduction that uses a minimum of new mathematics and illustrates a wealth of applications. Recognizing that there is not enough time in a short introductory course to present the traditional tensor theory approach James Hartle provides in this book a number of pedagogical innovations.
• Examples come first derivations later. In this physics first approach relevant simple solutions of the Einstein equation are presented first before introducing the field equations of general relativity and their supporting mathematics. This brings the student to the heart of the physical phenomena as quickly as possible.
• The emphasis is on the exciting phenomena of gravitational physics and the growing connection between theory and observation. Global positioning system black holes X-ray sources pulsars quasars gravitational waves the big bang and the large scale structure of the universe for example are used to illustrate the widespread role of how general relativity describes a wealth of everyday and exotic phenomena.
• Novel and simple examples are presented to keep the presentation concise and accessible: for instance Schwarzschild black hole spherical stars weak gravitational waves in flat spacetime.
• Mathematics beyond the typical advanced calculus knowledge is kept to a minimum. Only absolutely essential new mathematical concepts are introduced and these only when needed.
• The text s layered structure allows the text to be used for a range of courses depending on the length and level of the course—from junior level to introductory graduate level in physics and astronomy. After just the first few chapters a student will take away a broad introduction to some of the basic phenomena of gravitational physics and not just mathematical tools.
• Illustrative boxes are interspersed throughout providing students with applications experiments ideas examples and interesting sidelights that extend and complement concepts presented in the basic text without interrupting its flow.
