- Description
- This landmark text offers a rigorous full-year graduate level course on gravitation physics, teaching students to:

- Grasp the laws of physics in flat spacetime

- Predict orders of magnitude

- Calculate using the principal tools of modern geometry

- Predict all levels of precision

- Understand Einstein's geometric framework for physics

- Explore applications, including pulsars and neutron stars, cosmology, the Schwarzschild geometry and gravitational collapse, and gravitational waves

- Probe experimental tests of Einstein's theory

- Tackle advanced topics such as super space and quantum geometrodynamics The book offers a unique, alternating two-track pathway through the subject

- In many chapters, material focusing on basic physical ideas is designated as Track I. These sections together make an appropriate one-term advanced/graduate level course (mathematical prerequisites: vector analysis and simple partial-differential equations). The book is printed to make it easy for readers to identify these sections.

- The remaining Track 2 material provides a wealth of advanced topics instructors can draw from to flesh out a two-term course, with Track I sections serving as prerequisites.
