Buy Relativity Books at low prices. Large selection of more than products. Spacetime and Geometry: An Introduction to General Relativity Optics, Fluids, Plasmas, Elasticity, Relativity, and Statistical Physics /5. Description: An essential resource for learning about general relativity and much more, from four leading experts Important and useful to every student of relativity, this book is a unique collection of some problems--with solutions--in the fields of special and general relativity, gravitation, relativistic astrophysics, and cosmology. The. Dear Physics Forum personnel, Is it possible to learn differential geometry simultaneously while learning the relativity and gravitation? I have been reading Weinberg's book (currently in Chapter 02), but I believe that modern research in relativity is heavily based on the differential geometry and algebraic topology, which I did not master yet. Critical Acclaim for Relativity and Geometry: "It is only rarely that historians and philosophers of science have the opportunity to welcome a work of the outstanding caliber of Torretti's Relativity and Geometry. It is distinguished by the tenacity of its scholarship and the uncompromising rigor of its exposition." — Foundations of Physics5/5(1).
