Hartle's "Gravity" is a textbook for learning general relativity. On the back cover of the book, there are a lot of praises for the book from famous physicists including Stephen Hawking's. Overall, I enjoyed the book and the reading was beneficial.

The book contains many topics with detailed explanations in Cited by: Newton’s first five Propositions in Book 3 of the Principia were primarily devoted to describing the force of gravity that causes all bodies to gravitate toward each other, often in orbital motions.

In effect, Newton was logically constructing his argument that gravitational attractive force is universal. Before Newton began to describe and explain his concepts of universal gravitation in Book Three of the Principia (entitled the System of the World) he strongly advised his readers that his Definitions, his Laws of Motion, and the first three sections of Book One must first be carefully read and understood, before any reader attempts to read Book Three.

According to Einstein himself, this book is intended "to give an exact insight into the theory of Relativity to those readers who, from a general scientific and philosophical point of view, are interested in the theory, but who are not conversant with the mathematical apparatus of theoretical physics."/5.

It fills a real gap in the literature for an undergraduate or graduate student course book" - Stephen Hawking Hartle's "Gravity" is a textbook for learning general relativity.

On the back cover of the book, there are a lot of praises for the book from famous physicists including Stephen Hawking's.4/5(36). As I mentioned, the book's explanation is confusing in many places. For example, it is when introducing new mathematical stuffs like scalar product in the first part, and Christoffel symbols and covariant derivatives in the third part.

Before reading the book, I have read two relativity books, Peter Collier's, and Ellis and Williams's/5(33). Relativity sits in a comfortable middle ground between literary and popular fiction. So rarely do you find a book that can back up strong concepts, imagery and characterisation with a gripping plot.

The story itself is so impressively paced that even though the allusions are galactic, I always felt grounded while reading this book/5.

Science WebsiteFollowers: Bernard Schutz has done research and teaching in general relativity and especially its applications in astronomy since He is the author of more than publications, including Geometrical.

Published ingeneral relativity proposed that gravity, as well as motion, can affect the intervals of time and of space. The key idea of general relativity, called the equivalence principle.

The general theory of relativity, together with the necessary parts of the theory of invariants, is dealt with in the author’s book Die Grundlagen der allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie (The Foundations of the General Theory of Relativity) — Joh. Ambr. Barth, ; this book assumes some familiarity with the special theory of relativity.

One reason why the physics of general relativity is much more difficult than that of Newton’s theory of gravity or the theory of electrodynamics is a property called short, gravity can beget further gravity – where gravitational systems are concerned, the.

the quantization of gravity. Einstein's General Relativity equations are deduced directly from this theory of Quantum Gravity. Also, this theory leads to a complete description of the Electromagnetic Field, providing a consistent unification of gravity with electromagnetism.

THEORY We start with the action for a free-particle that, as we Cited by: When he wrote the book inEinstein’s name was scarcely known outside the physics institutes. Having just completed his masterpiece, The General Theory of Relativity—which provided a brand-new theory of gravity and promised a new perspective on the cosmos as a whole—he set out at once to share his excitement with as wide a public as possible in this popular and accessible book.

The book includes a section on general relativity that gives the case for a curved space-time, presents the mathematical background (tensor calculus, Riemannian geometry), discusses the Einstein equation and its solutions (including black holes and Penrose processes), and considers the energy-momentum tensor for various solutions.

This popular book is downloaded over 40 times per year and guarantees to be captivating and surprising on every page. First, the book introduces special relativity in a simple way. What does "relativity" mean.

This is an introduction to Einstein's theories of special and general relativity. This text makes relativity particularly easy and. Quantum gravity poses the problem of merging quantum mechanics and general relativity, the two great conceptual revolutions in the physics of the twentieth century.

The loop and spinfoam approach, presented in this book, is one of the leading research programs in the field. The first part of the book discusses the reformulation of the basis of classical and quantum Hamiltonian 5/5(4). " Relativity is a novel of assured and measured empathy, a story of familial love and familial hurt that is fair, honest and remarkably non-judgemental.

Hayes is a convincing writer and a true storyteller: her characters are alive." --Christos Tsiolkas, author of THE SLAP/5(56). In this splendidly lucid and profusely illustrated book, a Nobel laureate relates the fascinating story of Einstein, the general and special theories of relativity, and the scientists before and since who influenced relativity's genesis and development.

Gravity: An Introduction To General Relativity by James Hartle is reasonably good as an introduction, although in order to make the content accessible, he does skip over a lot of mathematical detail.

For your purposes, you might consider reading the first few chapters just to get the "big picture" if you find other books to be a bit too much at first. A listing of books by Einstein, is a "port" of an old project from the 's, which originally converted Einstein's relativity book into a hypertext file, in Windows "HelpFile" format ().It's now been converted to Adobe's portable document format (".PDF").

Not only should the “speed of gravity” be finite, but it seems implausible that it would be greater than c; in sectionwe argued based on empirically well established principles that there must be a maximum speed of cause and effect.

Although the argument was only applicable to special relativity, i.e., to a flat spacetime, it seems. "On Gravity offers a new and refreshing base from which to delve deeper than most popular-science books into the most pressing problems in fundamental physics."—Benjamin Skuse, Physics World "On Gravity is a delightful and engaging tour of Einstein’s great triumph—the general theory of relativity—by one of our best tour guides, A.

Zee. For years, the general theory of relativity has been a pillar of modern physics. The basic idea is so elegant that you don’t need superpowers to understand it.
