By Bernard Schutz

readability, clarity and rigor mix within the moment version of this widely-used textbook to supply step one into normal relativity for undergraduate scholars with a minimum historical past in arithmetic. subject matters inside of relativity that fascinate astrophysical researchers and scholars alike are lined with Schutz's attribute ease and authority - from black holes to gravitational lenses, from pulsars to the examine of the Universe as an entire. This version now includes discoveries via astronomers that require normal relativity for his or her rationalization; a revised bankruptcy on relativistic stars, together with new info on pulsars; a completely rewritten bankruptcy on cosmology; and a longer, complete therapy of recent detectors and anticipated assets. Over three hundred routines, many new to this version, provide scholars the arrogance to paintings with normal relativity and the required arithmetic, while the casual writing variety makes the subject material simply obtainable.
