9780716703341: Gravitation

This landmark text offers a rigorous full-year graduate level course on gravitation physics, teaching students to:
· Grasp the laws of physics in flat spacetime
· Predict orders of magnitude
· Calculate using the principal tools of modern geometry
· Predict all levels of precision
· Understand Einstein's geometric framework for physics
· Explore applications, including pulsars and neutron stars, cosmology, the Schwarzschild geometry and gravitational collapse, and gravitational waves
· Probe experimental tests of Einstein's theory
· Tackle advanced topics such as superspace and quantum geometrodynamics
The book offers a unique, alternating two-track  pathway through the subject:
· In many chapters, material focusing on basic physical ideas is designated as
Track 1. These sections together make an appropriate one-term advanced/graduate level course (mathematical prerequisites: vector analysis and simple partial-differential equations). The book is printed to make it easy for readers to identify these sections.
· The remaining Track 2 material provides a wealth of advanced topics instructors can draw from to flesh out a two-term course, with Track 1 sections serving as prerequisites.

From the Back Cover:

"Gravitation is a classic."--David Spergel, Princeton University

"Gravitation is the encyclopedic, definitive exposition of general relativity as of 1970. Any serious researcher of general relativity will want to have this book at hand."--Andrew Hamilton, University of Colorado, Boulder

"Gravitation has been a very influential book in the field, and it gives a remarkably thorough treatment of what's relevant in general relativity today."--Frans Pretorius, Princeton University

"This book is considered the Bible for everyone in the field of gravitation."--Alberto Vecchio, University of Birmingham

About the Author:

Charles W. Misner is professor emeritus of physics at the University of Maryland. Kip S. Thorne is the Feynman Professor of Theoretical Physics, Emeritus at the California Institute of Technology. His books include Modern Classical Physics(Princeton), Black Holes and Time Warps, and The Science of Interstellar. John Archibald Wheeler (1911–2008) was professor of physics at Princeton University and later at the University of Texas, Austin.
