A Relativist's Toolkit: The Mathematics of Black-Hole Mechanics

Buy
'... an elegant, thoughtful, useful and altogether commendable publication.' Contemporary Physics 'The author puts emphasis on training the readers and equipping them with the relevant skills of a working relativist. The text reaches a high pedagogical standard ... In this way the author succeeds in closing a gap in the existing text book literature especially for a readership mainly oriented towards physics.' Monatshefte fur Mathematik

"This book amply fulfills its promise: its coverage is sufficiently complete to enable a dedicated reader to undertake sophisticated calculations with confidence and it even provides a reference to a handy computer package for tensor manipulations... an elegant, thoughtful, useful and altogether commendable timely publication." Contemporary Physics

This textbook fills a gap in the existing literature on general relativity by providing the advanced student with practical tools for the computation of many physically interesting quantities. The context is provided by the mathematical theory of black holes, one of the most elegant, successful and relevant applications of general relativity. Topics discussed include congruences of timelike and null geodesics, the embedding of spacelike, timelike and null hypersurfaces in spacetime, and the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulations of general relativity. Suitable for graduate students and researchers in gravitational physics.
