First published in , Gravitation is a landmark graduate-level textbook that presents Einstein’s general theory of relativity and offers a rigorous, full-year course on the physics of gravitation. Upon publication, Science called it “a pedagogic masterpiece,” and it has since become a classic, considered essential reading for every serious student and researcher in the field of 5/5(6). The book contains almost problems and solutions in the fields of special relativity, general relativity, gravitation, relativistic astrophysics, and cosmology. Emphasis is placed on computable results, predictions, and models for material phenomena in the real universe. The problems deal with special-relativistic kinematics, dynamics, coordinate transformations, invariants, and tensors Cited by:

degree in physics will have had a course in one of the most important devel-opments in modern physics: Einstein’s general theory of relativity. Also, given the exciting discoveries in astrophysics and cosmology of recent years, it is highly desirable to have an introductory course whereby such subjects can be presented in their proper Size: 2MB. Introduction to Uniform Circular Motion and Gravitation. Rotation Angle and Angular Velocity. Centripetal Acceleration. Centripetal Force. Fictitious Forces and Non-inertial Frames: The Coriolis Force. Newton’s Universal Law of Gravitation. Satellites and Kepler’s Laws: An Argument for Simplicity. Section Summary.

Gravitation • Gravitation is the oldest field in physics, yet is still not completely understood. Newton’s law of gravitation () Einstein’s General Relativity () • Theoretical challenge: There is no quantum theory of gravitation yet, and gravity has not been unified with the rest of physics. • Experimental challenge:File Size: 1MB. Gravity (from Latin gravitas, meaning 'weight'), or gravitation, is a natural phenomenon by which all things with mass or energy—including planets, stars, galaxies, and even light —are brought toward (or gravitate toward) one another. On Earth, gravity gives weight to physical objects, and the Moon's gravity causes the ocean gravitational attraction of the original gaseous matter.

Prelude to Gravitation Our visible Universe contains billions of galaxies, whose very existence is due to the force of gravity.

Gravity is ultimately responsible for the energy output of all stars—initiating thermonuclear reactions in stars, allowing the Sun to heat Earth, and making galaxies visible from unfathomable distances.

About this book. Introduction. This book deals with the relationship between gravitation and elementary particle physics, and the implications of these subjects for astrophysics. There has, in recent years, been renewed interest in theories that connect up gravitation and particle physics, and in the astrophysical consequences of such theories.

In recent years, the fields of particle physics and astrophysics have become increasingly interdependent. The aim of this series is to provide a library of books to meet the needs of students and researchers in these fields.

If you are interested in writing or editing a book for the series, we would be delighted to hear from you. Cosmology and Gravitation: Xth Brazilian School of Cosmology and Gravitation; 25th Anniversary (), Mangaratiba, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, This volume contains a series of topical lectures in general relativity, cosmology, astrophysics, and field theory, with contributions from theorists and experimentalists.

Examples of relativistic gravitation in action are drawn from the astrophysical domain. The book can be read on two levels: first as an introductory fast-track course, and then as a detailed course reinforced by problems which illuminate technical examples.

The book has extensive links to the literature of relativistic astrophysics and cosmology. First published inGravitation is a landmark graduate-level textbook that presents Einstein’s general theory of relativity and offers a rigorous, full-year course on the physics of gravitation.
