GENERAL RELATIVITY WOODHOUSE PDF
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.

General Relativity by N. Luca Signorelli rated it it was amazing Feb 06, Steve Schlutow rated it liked it Mar 11, 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 the analysis of distance and time measurements in the presence of gravity, rather than on the underlying mathematical structure. Open Preview See a Problem? While primarily designed as an introduction for final-year undergraduates and first-year postgraduates in mathematics, the book is also accessible to physicists who would like to see a more mathematical approach to the relatiivity.
