Book Detail Page

written by Edwin F. Taylor and John A Wheeler
published by the Addison-Wesley
This text serves as an introduction to the more exotic aspects of general relativity, specifically black holes, while not overwhelming the student with mathematics more advanced than calculus.  By not incorporating tensors and differential geometry, the authors designed the book to accompany a general relativity course at the lower undergraduate level.
