In Part I the foundations of general relativity are thoroughly developed, while Part II is devoted to tests of /5(4). A textbook on general relativity and relativistic astrophysics is presented. The mathematical tools used in the general theory of relativity are developed, followed by the development of the general theory of relativity along traditional lines using coordinate-free language. Cartan's calculus of differential forms is utilized. The tests of general relativity are discussed in detail and the Cited by: This book is a greatly-expanded version of Sean Carroll's earlier "Lecture Notes on General Relativity," which can still be acquired online, for free, from a page on his current website. He notes that about half of the book is newer than the lecture notes, that much of the material in the lecture notes was "polished and improved" when the book.

In the second part, the general theory of relativity is developed along traditional lines. The coordinate-free language is emphasized. Full use of Cartan's calculus of differential forms is made. The tests of general relativity are discussed. The last part of the book treats important aspects of the physics of compact objects.4/5(1). General relativity and relativistic astrophysics.

The book contains almost problems and solutions in the fields of special relativity, general relativity, gravitation, relativistic astrophysics, and cosmology. Emphasis is placed on computable results, predictions, and models for material phenomena in the real universe. The problems deal with special-relativistic kinematics, dynamics, coordinate transformations, invariants, and Cited by:   This book provides a completely revised and expanded version of the previous classic edition ‘General Relativity and Relativistic Astrophysics’. In Part I the foundations of general relativity are thoroughly developed, while Part II is devoted to tests of general relativity and many of its applications.5/5(1). Get this from a library! General relativity, astrophysics, and cosmology. [A K Raychaudhuri; S Banerji; A Banerjee] -- This book is intended for students interested in the applications of general relativity in astrophysics and cosmology but who would like to avoid mathematical complications. This volume thus combines.
