This course has two aims. Aim 1 – To explain how Einstein s theory models gravitation as the curvature of space-time. This involves setting up. 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. In December, , I had the pleasure of reviewing the admirable book, Special Relativity, by N. M. J. Woodhouse, and now I have the.

General Relativity by Woodhouse, N M J
While primarily designed as an introduction for final-year undergraduates and first-year postgraduates in woodhhouse, the book is also accessible to physicists who would like to see a more mathematical approach to the ideas. To ask other readers questions about General Relativityplease sign up.
Cpfoxhunt rated it it was amazing Jul 07, 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. At centre stage are the “local inertial coordinates” set up by an observer in free fall, in which special relativity is valid over short times and distances.

Mohammad Nourbakhsh added it Jan 11, The geometric ideas – which are central to the understanding of the nature of gravity – are introduced in parallel with the development of the theory, the emphasis being on laying bare how one is led to pseudo-Riemannian geometry generall a natural process of reconciliation of special relativity with the equivalence principle.
