Description

This comprehensive student manual has been designed to accompany the major textbook by Bernard Schutz, A First Course in General Relativity, and uses detailed solutions, cross-referenced to several introductory and more complicated textbooks, to allow self-learners, undergraduates and postgraduates to master General relativity through problem solving. The perfect accompaniment to Schutz textbook, this manual guides the reader step by step through over 200 exercises, with transparent simple-to-apply derivations. It supplies detailed solutions to nearly half of Schutz’s exercises, and comprises 125 up to date supplementary problems that deal with the subtle points of every chapter. It features a comprehensive index and collects helpful mathematical results, such as transformation matrices and Christoffel symbols for regularly studied spacetimes, in an appendix. Supported by a web-based table categorising exercises, a Maple worksheet and an instructor’s manual, this newsletter supplies a useful resource for all scholars and instructors using Schutz’s textbook.

About the Author

Robert Scott is a physicist at the University of Brest, where he studies a variety of topics including general relativity, interpretations of quantum mechanics, particle physics, relativistic quantum mechanics, and quantum field theory. In addition Dr Scott has worked on many aspects of the ocean circulation theory, from microscale turbulence to the maintenance of the global scale general circulation.
