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.

My library Help Advanced Book Search. Other editions – View all General Relativity N. Although the original audience was made up of mathematics students, the focus is on the chain of reasoning that leads to the relativistic theory from generxl analysis of distance and time measurements in the presence of gravity, rather than on the underlying mathematical structure.

Includes links to recent developments, including theoretical work and observational evidence, to encourage further study. Omar Ahmed marked it as to-read Apr 21, In more practical terms, the book is a sequel to the author’s Special Woodhohse in the same series, with some overlap in the treatment of tensors.

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. B M added it Aug 04, The geometric ideas – which are central to the understanding of the nature of gravity – are genefal in parallel with the development of the theory, the emphasis being on laying bare how one is led to pseudo-Riemannian geometry through a natural process of reconciliation of special relativity with the equivalence principle.
