A vector is a quantity with a magnitude and a direction. This primitive concept, familiar from undergraduate physics and mathematics, applies equally in general relativity.

An example of a vector is d~x, the diﬀerence vector between two inﬁnitesimally close points of spacetime. Vectors form a linear algebra (i.e., a File Size: KB. General relativity (GR), also known as the general theory of relativity (GTR), is the geometric theory of gravitation published by Albert Einstein in and the current description of gravitation in modern l relativity generalizes special relativity and refines Newton's law of universal gravitation, providing a unified description of gravity as a geometric property of space.

Einstein's general theory of relativity requires a curved space for the description of the physical world. If one wishes to go beyond superficial discussions of the physical relations involved, one needs to set up precise equations for handling curved space.

The well-established mathematical technique that accomplishes this is clearly described in this classic book by Nobel Laureate 4/5(6).

Theory of Relativity. Dover, reprint. In print, ISBN X; list price $ (paperback). This was the first book on relativity theory, written in a burst of youthful enthusiasm by the twenty year old Pauli. Needless to say, it is of purely historical interest today.

Here is a book which is quirky but which will be valuable to some. For an y vector v ∈ E, there is a vector (− v) ∈ E, called the opposite of v, such that v + (− v) = 0. The multiplication by scalars satisﬁes the following conditions:Author: Ivan Avramidi.

Can u suggest a me a really good book on vector calculus and analysis, the book should be more of conceptual nature, because i want to know the indepth concept and meaning of various things like curl, grad, div, various theorems.

I mean book shouldn't be problem oriented. I don't need too much. This undergraduate textbook provides a simple, concise introduction to tensor algebra and analysis, as well as special and general relativity.

With a plethora of examples, explanations, and exercises, it forms a well-rounded didactic text that will be useful for any related course. On the Theory of Relativity. Four-Dimensional Vector Algebra.

Sommerfeld. In this and some subsequent studies I want to illustrate, how remarkably simplified the electrodynamic concepts and calculations become, when we allow ourselves to be led by the deep space-time understanding of the friend who suddenly passed away, the.

Since your declaration of “basic” is vague, I will start with the standard books I would recommend, starting with special relativity. Try to begin with Introduction to Electrodynamics by David Griffiths. The two chapters on relativity cover most c. This broad introduction to vector and tensor analysis is designed for the advanced undergraduate or graduate student in mathematics, physics, and engineering as well as for the practicing engineer or physicist who needs a theoretical understanding of.

In mathematics and physics, a tensor field assigns a tensor to each point of a mathematical space (typically a Euclidean space or manifold).Tensor fields are used in differential geometry, algebraic geometry, general relativity, in the analysis of stress and strain in materials, and in numerous applications in the physical sciences.

As a tensor is a generalization of a scalar (a pure number. I want to learn calculus 1,2,3 vector calculus, analysis and so on in special relativity. But I never found a good and clear book/source on it. Can someone recommend an. "This is a first-rate book and deserves to be widely read." — American Mathematical Monthly Despite its success as a mathematical tool in the general theory of relativity and its adaptability to a wide range of mathematical and physical problems, tensor analysis has always had a rather restricted level of use, with an emphasis on notation and the manipulation of indices.

A broad introductory treatment, this volume examines general Cartesian coordinates, the cross product, Einstein's special theory of relativity, bases in general coordinate systems, maxima and minima of functions of two variables, line integrals, integral theorems, fundamental notions in n-space, Riemannian geometry, algebraic properties of the curvature tensor, and more.

There is an old book by Max Born, called Einstein's Theory of Relativity which explains the Special Relativity in great detail without any advanced mathematics and a little bit of General Relativity. It is suitable for those who has not yet started to physics degree or will not, but would like to understand the theory in a deeper and mathematical manner.

Tensor analysis, branch of mathematics concerned with relations or laws that remain valid regardless of the system of coordinates used to specify the quantities. Such relations are called covariant. Tensors were invented as an extension of vectors to formalize the manipulation of geometric entities arising in the study of mathematical manifolds.

A vector is an entity that has. 60 Tensor analysis in special relativity t (This is the same way in which the vector AαEeαis kept frame independent.) This inverse transformation gives rise to the word ‘dual’ in ‘dual vector space’.

The property of trans-forming with basis vectors gives rise to the co in ‘covariant vector’ and its shorter form ‘covector’.File Size: KB. While general relativity stand out as a splendid and logic theory, these qualiﬁ-cations apply more in retrospect than during the development of the theory.

The path followed by Einstein was, at some times, as if he was trying to ﬁnd his way in a labyrinth. The creation of this theory was an extremely diﬃcult problem and mayFile Size: KB.

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 Cited by: Aimed at scientists and engineers, this book is an exciting intellectual journey through the mathematical worlds of Euclid, Newton, Maxwell, Einstein, and Schrodinger-Dirac.

While similar books present the required mathematics in a piecemeal manner with tangential references to the relevant physics. This series is the fourth installment of a six-quarter series that explore the foundations of modern physics.

In this quarter, Leonard Susskind focuses on Einstein's General Theory of Relativity. Mechanics and Pdf Relativity. This note covers the following topics: oscillators damped and pdf and resonance (how to rock your car out of a snow bank or use a swing), an introduction to Lagrangian mechanics and optimization, symmetries and Noether's theorem, special relativity, collisions and scattering, rotational motion, angular momentum, torque, the moment of inertia.

Two good ways or paths to get to tensor calculus are 1) through vector analysis/calculus and differential geometry, and 2) through linear/multilinear algebra and matrices. Having knowledge of both paths makes it easier to study and understand ten.The concepts of vectors are introduced one ebook one, and the book ebook logically towards its final stages (introductory tensor analysis) via, inter alia, dot and cross products, partial differential operators on vector spaces (grad, div, curl, Laplacian etc.), line and surface integrals (along with vital allied therorems such as Stokes' and 5/5(5).
