Ã¢ÂÂ¢ Grasp the laws of physics in flat spacetime
Ã¢ÂÂ¢ Predict orders of magnitude
Ã¢ÂÂ¢ Calculate using the principal tools of modern geometry
Ã¢ÂÂ¢ Predict all levels of precision
Ã¢ÂÂ¢ Understand Einstein's geometric framework for physics
Ã¢ÂÂ¢ Explore applications, including pulsars and neutron stars, cosmology, the Schwarzschild geometry and gravitational collapse, and gravitational waves
Ã¢ÂÂ¢ Probe experimental tests of Einstein's theory
Ã¢ÂÂ¢ Tackle advanced topics such as superspace and quantum geometrodynamics
The book offers a unique, alternating two-trackÃÂ pathway through the subject:
Ã¢ÂÂ¢ 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.
Ã¢ÂÂ¢ 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.
About: Geometrodynamics, general relativity, the mathematics of curved spacetime, Einstein's theories, relativistic stars, and gravitational collapse are some of the topics examined in a study of gravitational physics
