Author: Valeri P. Frolov, Andrei Zelnikov Full Title: Introduction To Black Hole Physics Publisher: Oxford University Press; 1 edition (December 1, 2011) Year: 2011 ISBN-13: 9780199692293 (978-0-19-969229-3) ISBN-10: 0199692297 Pages: 522 Language: English Genre: Astronomy & Space Science File type: PDF (True, but nonnative Cover) Quality: 9/10 Price: £64.00 This book is about black holes, one of the most intriguing objects of modern Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics. For many years, black holes have been considered as interesting solutions of the theory of General Relativity with a number of amusing mathematical properties. Now after the discovery of astrophysical black holes, the Einstein gravity has become an important tool for their study. This self-contained textbook combines physical, mathematical, and astrophysical aspects of black hole theory. Pedagogically presented, it contains 'standard' material on black holes as well as relatively new subjects such as the role of hidden symmetries in black hole physics, and black holes in spacetimes with large extra dimensions. The book will appeal to students and young scientists interested in the theory of black holes. ✓ Comprehensive introduction to black hole physics ✓ Useful for theoretical physicists, astrophysicists and mathematicians ✓ Beautifully illustrated ✓ Numerous exercises and solutions ✓ Hot topic that attracts wide interest ------------- Our members see more.
