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 remainingTrack 2material provides a wealth of advanced topics instructors can draw from to flesh out a two-term course, with Track 1 sections serving as prerequisites.Misner, Charles W. is the author of 'Gravitation', published 1973 under ISBN 9780716703440 and ISBN 0716703440.
