Advanced general relativity (Stewart J.)
240 pages | Publisher: Cambridge University Press | Reprint edition (February 15, 2003) | ISBN-10: 0521449464 | PDF
A modern self-contained introduction to key topics in advanced general relativity. The opening chapter reviews the subject, with strong emphasis on the geometric structures underlying the theory. The next chapter discusses 2-component spinor theory, its usefulness for describing zero-mass fields, its practical application via Newman-Penrose formalism, together with examples and applications. The subsequent chapter is an account of the asymptotic theory far from a strong gravitational source, describing the mathematical theory by which measurements of the far-field and gravitational radiation emanating from a source can be used to describe the source itself. The final chapter describes the natural characteristic initial value problem, first in general terms, and then with particular emphasis for relativity, concluding with its relation to Arnold's singularity theory.

Advanced Mechanics and General Relativity by Joel Franklin
English | ISBN: 0521762456, 0511776543 | 2010 | PDF | 384 pages | 2,6 MB

Aimed at advanced undergraduates with background knowledge of classical mechanics and electricity and magnetism, this textbook presents both the particle dynamics relevant to general relativity, and the field dynamics necessary to understand the theory.

Relativity : An Introduction to Special and General Relativity
Cambridge University Press | 2004-03-29 | ISBN: 0521811856 | 416 pages | PDF | 3 mb

Thoroughly revised and updated, this self-contained textbook provides a pedagogical introduction to relativity. It covers the most important features of special as well as general relativity, and considers more difficult topics, such as charged pole-dipole particles, Petrov classification, groups of motions, gravitational lenses, exact solutions and the structure of infinity. The necessary mathematical tools are provided, most derivations are complete, and exercises are included where appropriat

Fundamental Principles of General Relativity Theories: Local and Global Aspects of Gravitation and Cosmology

Fundamental Principles of General Relativity Theories: Local and Global Aspects of Gravitation and Cosmology by H. Treder
2013 | PDF | 220 pages | ISBN-10: 1475708491 | English | 5 MB

The present monograph is not a self-contained introductory text. Instead it presupposes to a large extent that the reader is not only thoroughly familiar with the special theory of relativity, but that he or she has studied the standard aspects of the general theory, as weIl. Starting from local and global formulations of the principlcs of inertia and relativity, we discuss the microscopic ancl telcscopic aspects of gravitation.
