A Relativist's Toolkit: The Mathematics of Black-Hole by Eric Poisson

By Eric Poisson

This 2004 textbook fills a spot within the literature on common relativity via offering the complex scholar with functional instruments for the computation of many bodily attention-grabbing amounts. The context is supplied by means of the mathematical concept of black holes, some of the most dependent, winning, and appropriate functions of common relativity. one of the issues mentioned are congruencies of timelike and null geodesics, the embedding of spacelike, timelike and null hypersurfaces in spacetime, and the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulations of normal relativity. even if the booklet is self-contained, it's not intended to function an creation to normal relativity. as an alternative, it really is intended to assist the reader collect complicated abilities and develop into a reliable researcher in relativity and gravitational physics. the first readership includes graduate scholars in gravitational physics. it is going to even be an invaluable reference for extra pro researchers operating during this field.
