Problem Book in Relativity and Gravitation by Alan Lightman
Would you like to tell gravitatiom about a lower price? Teukolsky No preview available – The authors are from the peak of the golden age of GR and share their honed talents with the rest of us. I have been looking for something more along the lines of derivations and explanations as to how scientist came to them if such a thing happened or exist.
Arnold Priblem is currently reading it Nov 01, Very good as a supplement. Horatio marked it as to-read May 26, Open Preview See a Problem?

Like quantum theory there are relatively few problems with exact solutions in GR and this book has many of the classics worked out in detail. Very good as a supplement. Do you believe that this item violates a copyright?
While that in itself is a major accomplishment, a key value of the book lies in the terse disciplined elegance of the solutions. Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. Dan Bullok added it Sep 26, In their solutions, the authors have attempted to convey a mode of approach to these kinds of problems, revealing procedures that can reduce the labor of calculations while avoiding the pitfall of too much or too powerful formalism.
Then it always pains me to read a lot of the authors mentioning that just the juicy stuff without mathematical details will be involved in the book. It also has some old, monograph -ish typesetting of the equations, though that could just be an artifact of an old edition I received. Nitin CR added it Nov 09, You’ll have been exposed to almost all, if not all, of the modern concepts in general GR.
