Description

General Relativity and Cosmology: A First Course is an introductory textbook on general relativity and cosmology. This introductory text offers a fine balance between the mathematical rigor and the philosophy behind the fundamental principles of general relativity. The textbook starts with the crucial basics needed for general relativity: Newtonian Mechanics, Newton’s law of gravity and special relativity. What follows is an overview of the main principles of general relativity and physics in curved spacetimes. Finally, Einstein’s field equations are explored within the context of cosmology. Overall, General Relativity and Cosmology offers a brief, but rigorous introduction into one of the cornerstone theories of modern physics.
