The Problem of Time: Quantum Mechanics Versus General Relativity

The Problem of Time: Quantum Mechanics Versus General Relativity By Edward Anderson
English | PDF | 2017 | 917 Pages | ISBN : 331958846X | 17.84 MB

This book is a treatise on time and on background independence in physics. It first considers how time is conceived of in each accepted paradigm of physics: Newtonian, special relativity, quantum mechanics (QM) and general relativity (GR). Substantial differences are moreover uncovered between what is meant by time in QM and in GR.

Advanced general relativity (Stewart J.)
240 pages | Publisher: Cambridge University Press | Reprint edition (February 15, 2003) | ISBN-10: 0521449464 | PDF
A modern self-contained introduction to key topics in advanced general relativity. The opening chapter reviews the subject, with strong emphasis on the geometric structures underlying the theory. The next chapter discusses 2-component spinor theory, its usefulness for describing zero-mass fields, its practical application via Newman-Penrose formalism, together with examples and applications. The subsequent chapter is an account of the asymptotic theory far from a strong gravitational source, describing the mathematical theory by which measurements of the far-field and gravitational radiation emanating from a source can be used to describe the source itself. The final chapter describes the natural characteristic initial value problem, first in general terms, and then with particular emphasis for relativity, concluding with its relation to Arnold's singularity theory.

Relativity : An Introduction to Special and General Relativity
Cambridge University Press | 2004-03-29 | ISBN: 0521811856 | 416 pages | PDF | 3 mb

Thoroughly revised and updated, this self-contained textbook provides a pedagogical introduction to relativity. It covers the most important features of special as well as general relativity, and considers more difficult topics, such as charged pole-dipole particles, Petrov classification, groups of motions, gravitational lenses, exact solutions and the structure of infinity. The necessary mathematical tools are provided, most derivations are complete, and exercises are included where appropriat
