Cambridge Core - Cosmology, Relativity and Gravitation - General Relativity and Gravitation - edited by Abhay Ashtekar. An essential resource for learning about general relativity and much more, from four leading experts Important and useful to every student of relativity, this book is a unique collection of some problems--with solutions--in the fields of special and general relativity, gravitation, relativistic astrophysics, and cosmology.

In this post we see book titled The Relativistic Theory of Gravitation by A. A. Logunov and M. A. you think the title is a bit scary, then it is. Without a proper background in General Relativity (GR) and associated subjects (tensor calculus, etc.) this book is not readable. Einstein's theory of relativity. The reader is assumed to have but little mathematical knowledge. Topics covered includes: Geometry and Cosmology, The Fundamental Laws of Classical Mechanics, The Newtonian World-System, The Fundamental Laws of Optics, The Fundamental Laws of Electrodynamics and Einstein's Special Principle of Relativity.

Physics & Astronomy. Problem Book in Relativity and Gravitation Alan P. Lightman, William H. Press, book is a unique collection of some problems — with solutions — in the fields of special and general relativity, gravitation, relativistic astrophysics, and cosmology. author of Spacetime and Geometry. General relativity was Einstein’s theory of gravity, published in , which extended special relativity to take into account non-inertial frames of reference — areas that are accelerating with respect to each other. General relativity takes the form of field equations, describing the curvature of space-time and the distribution of matter throughout space-time.
