Eddington A. Space, Time and Gravitation: An Outline of the General Relativity Theory
Cambridge University Press, 1953, 218 Pages
This classic book is essential reading for all those interested in the development of mode physics. Sir Arthur Eddington's account of the general theory of relativity, 'without,' as he says in his preface, 'introducing anything very technical in the way of mathematics, physics or philosophy', was first published in the exciting days of 1920 soon after the first objective tests of the theory had demonstrated its validity. The book was at once received with acclamation by reviewers and remains today one of the simplest and most straightforward accounts in print. The reviewer in the Athenaeum described it as 'a masterly book. The arrangement, the vigour and ease of the reasoning, the felicity of illustration, the clear, flexible prose and (we must mention it) the wit, make this book one of the most adequate and engaging attempts at the non-technical exposition of a scientific theory that it has ever been our good fortune to encounter.' This reissue includes a foreword by Sir Hermann Bondi, FRS, giving a brief appraisal of the book, and placing it in its historical and scientific context.

Cambridge University Press, 2005, 485 Pages This book is about gravitational radiation detectors. It is about experimental physics: the physics of extremely sensitive instruments designed to detect the infinitesimal time varying strains in space time which are gravitational waves. The purpose of this book is two-fold. The first is to provide an introduction to the field of gravitational wave detection at a general level. The second is to provi...

Cambridge University Press, 2010, 309 p. The theory of relativity describes the laws of physics in a given space-time. However, a physical theory must provide observational predictions expressed in terms of measurements, which are the outcome of practical experiments and observations. Ideal for researchers with a mathematical background and a basic knowledge of relativity, this book will help in the understanding of the physics behind the mathema...

Cambridge University Press, 2009, 525 pages Einstein's theory of general relativity is a theory of gravity and, as in the earlier Newtonian theory, much can be learned about the character of gravitation and its effects by investigating particular idealized examples. This book describes the basic solutions of Einstein's equations with a particular emphasis on what they mean, both geometrically and physically. New concepts, such as big bang and b...

Cambridge University Press, 1989, 192 p. Naber provides an elementary introduction to the geometrical methods and notions used in special and general relativity. Particular emphasis is placed on the ideas concerned with the structure of space-time and that play a role in the Penrose-Hawking singularity theorems. The author's primary purpose is to give a rigorous proof of the simplest of these theorems, by the one that is representative of the who...

D. Reidel Publishing Company, 1982, 259 p. "General Relativity and Matter" represents a bold attempt by its author to formulate, in as transparent and complete a way as possible, a fundamental theory of matter rooted in the theory of relativity - where the latter is viewed as providing an explanatory level of understanding for probing the fundamental nature of matter in domains ranging all the way from fermis and less to light years and more. We...

Springer, London, 2006, 219 pages Based on a course given at Oxford over many years, this book is a short and concise exposition of the central ideas of general relativity. Although the original audience was made up of mathematics students, the focus is on the chain of reasoning that leads to the relativistic theory from the analysis of distance and time measurements in the presence of gravity, rather than on the underlying mathematical structure...
