Book Description
Publication Date: April 4, 2005 | ISBN-10: 012200681X | ISBN-13: 978-0122006814 | Edition: 1
This book combines relativity, astrophysics, and cosmology in a single volume, providing an introduction to each subject that enables students to understand more detailed treatises as well as the current literature. The section on general relativity 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, Penrose processes, and similar topics), and considers the energy-momentum tensor for various solutions. The next section on relativistic astrophysics discusses stellar contraction and collapse, neutron stars and their equations of state, black holes, and accretion onto collapsed objects. Lastly, the section on cosmology discusses various cosmological models, observational tests, and scenarios for the early universe.

* Clearly combines relativity, astrophysics, and cosmology in a single volume so students can understand more detailed treatises and current literature

* Extensive introductions to each section are followed by relevant examples and numerous exercises

* Provides an easy-to-understand approach to this advanced field of mathematics and modern physics by providing highly detailed derivations of all equations and results
