Problem Book in Relativity and Gravitation by Alan Lightman

If I were ever to publish a second edition of Spacetime and Geometry — unlikely, but check back in another ten years — one thing I would like to do would be to increase the number of problems at the end of each chapter. I like the problems that are there, but they certainly could be greater in number. And there is no solutions manual, to the chagrin of numerous professors over the last decade. A great thing to have for self-study. And now everyone can have it for free! Princeton University Press, the publisher, gave permission to put the book online , for which students everywhere should be grateful. You can still buy it from Amazon.

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. The problems are expressed in broad physical terms to enhance their pertinence to readers with diverse backgrounds. In their solutions, the authors have attempted to convey a mode of approach to these kinds of problems, revealing procedures that can reduce the labor of calculations while avoiding the pitfall of too much or too powerful formalism. Although well suited for individual use, the volume may also be used with one of the modem textbooks in general relativity. Sign up to our newsletter today!
