## Additional relativity books

(in addition to the old list on p. 2 of the notes)
### New textbooks comparable to green Schutz

- Ray D'Inverno,
*Introducing Einstein's Relativity*,
Clarendon/Oxford University Press, 1992.
- James B. Hartle,
*Gravity: An Introduction to Einstein's General
Relativity*, Pearson/Addison-Wesley, 2003.
(This is considered more "physical" than Schutz's book.)
- Sean M. Carroll,
*Spacetime and Geometry:
An Introduction to General Relativity*, Pearson/Addison-Wesley, 2004.
(This book is slightly more advanced than Schutz's book
(and influenced by it).)
The lecture notes
that developed into the book are available for free.
- M. P. Hobson, G. Efstathiou, and A. N. Lasenby,
*General Relativity: An Introduction for Physicists*,
Cambridge U. P., 2006.
- O. Gron and S. Hervik,
*Einstein's General Theory of Relativity
with Modern Applications in Cosmology*, Springer, 2007.
(more advanced)
- J. D. Walecka,
*Introduction to General Relativity*,
World Scientific, 2007. (I haven't seen this one yet.)

### New books, more advanced or specialized

- Theodore Frankel,
*The Geometry of Physics: An Introduction*,
2nd ed., Cambridge University Press, 2004.
(This is not the same as the much shorter Frankel book on the old list.)
- Eric Poisson,
*A Relativist's Toolkit:
The Mathematics of Black-Hole Mechanics*,
Cambridge University Press, 2004.

### Books on the old list of special note

- Wolfgang Rindler,
*Essential Relativity: Special, General, and
Cosmological*, revised 2nd ed., Springer, 1979.
(This covers special relativity in more detail than we have time for in
this course.)
- Bernard Schutz,
*Geometrical Methods of Mathematical Physics*,
Cambridge U. P., 1980.
(Gray Schutz has surprisingly little overlap with green Schutz: more on
differential forms and Lie groups, less on covariant derivatives.)

### The old mathematical supplement (before Isham)

- R. L. Bishop and S. I. Goldberg,
*Tensor Analysis on
Manifolds*, Dover, 1980.

### And finally ...

- Abraham Pais,
*`Subtle is the Lord ...': The Science and the
Life of Albert Einstein*, Oxford University Press, 1982.
(great biography with significant scientific content)
