Naber G.L. Spacetime and Singularities. An Intriduction
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 conceed 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 whole. He provides exercises and examples at the end of each chapter. No previous exposure either to relativity theory of differential geometry is required of the reader, as necessary concepts are developed when needed, though some restrictions ae imposed on the types of space considered.

In physics, Feynman diagrams are used to reason about quantum processes. In the 1980s, it became clear that underlying these diagrams is a powerful analogy between quantum physics and topology. Namely, a linear operator behaves very much like a `cobordism': a manifold representing spacetime, going between two manifolds representing space. This led to a burst of work on topological quantum eld theory and `quantum topology'. But this was just the b...

Kluwer Academic Publishers ,1991. - 555 p. The Schrodinger equation is the basic equation of quantum theory. The study of this equation plays an exceptionally important role in modern physics. From a mathematician's point of view the Schrodinger equation is as inexhaustible as mathematics itself. In this book an attempt has been made to set forth those topics of mathematical physics, associated with the study of the Schr/Sdinger equation, which...

Cambridge University Press, 2003, 276 pages This timely volume provides a broad survey of (2+l)-dimensional quantum gravity. It emphasises the 'quantum cosmology' of closed universes and the quantum mechanics of the (2+l)-dimensional black hole. It compares and contrasts a variety of approaches, and examines what they imply for a realistic theory of quantum gravity. General relativity in three spacetime dimensions has become a popular arena in...

Springer-Verlag Berlin, 2006, 531 pages After about a century of success, physicists feel the need to probe the limits of validity of special-relativity base theories. This book is the outcome of a special seminar held on this topic. The authors gather in a single volume an extensive collection of introductions and reviews of the various facets involved, and also includes detailed discussion of philosophical and historical aspects.

Springer,2010,153 p. Addressing graduate students and researchers in theoretical physics and mathematics, this book presents a new formulation of the theory of gravity. In the new approach the gravitational field has the same ontology as the electromagnetic, strong, and weak fields. In other words it is a physical field living in Minkowski spacetime. Some necessary new mathematical concepts are introduced and carefully explained. Then they are us...

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...
