Product Description


'This remarkable book gives a superb pedagogical treatment of topics that are crucial for modern astrophysics and gravitational-wave science, but (sadly) are generally omitted from textbooks on general relativity, or treated much too briefly. With enthusiasm, I recommend this book to all astrophysicists, gravitational physicists, and students of these subjects.' Kip S. Thorne, California Institute of Technology

'This book is likely to become the bedside reading of all students and working scientists interested in Newtonian and Einsteinian gravity. Pedagogically written using fully modern notation, the book contains an extensive description of the post-Newtonian approximation, and is replete with useful results on gravitational waves and the motion of bodies under gravity.' Luc Blanchet, Institut d'Astrophysique de Paris

Book Description

Exploring approximate solutions to general relativity and their consequences, this textbook offers a unique presentation of Einstein's theory by developing powerful methods that can be applied to astrophysical systems. Ideal for graduate courses on general relativity and relativistic astrophysics, the book examines real-life systems and features over 100 exercises.

Great Book 13 May 2014
By Alan T. Lefor - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is at a high level, but offers a wealth of information not found in other single sources. It belongs on the shelf of anyone seriously interested in Gravitation. I was particularly impressed with the coverage of Newtonian gravitation as a foundation for the remainder of the book.

Advanced textbook on Gravity 13 Oct. 2014
By Charles P. Poole, Jr. - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
With the recent disscoveries of dark matter and dark energy gravity has become an important topic in physics. This advanced textbook explores approximate solutions to general relativity and their consequences. It is recommended reading for physicists with advanced degrees.
