General Relativity  A Geometric Approach, Ludvigsen, Malcolm
3 Ludvigsen, Malcolm General Relativity A Geometric Approach
Cambridge University Press 1999 052163976X / 9780521639767 First Edition; First Printing Paperback Very Good 
Starting with the idea of an event and finishing with a description of the standard big-bang model of the Universe, this textbook provides a clear, concise and up-to-date introduction to the theory of general relativity, suitable for final-year undergraduate mathematics or physics students. Throughout, the emphasis is on the geometric structure of spacetime, rather than the traditional coordinate-dependent approach. This allows the theory to be pared down and presented in its simplest and most elegant form. Topics covered include flat spacetime (special relativity), Maxwell fields, the energy-momentum tensor, spacetime curvature and gravity, Schwarzschild and Kerr spacetimes, black holes and singularities, and cosmology. In ; 9.84 X 7.01 X 0.55 inches; 230 pages
