Charles Misner, Kip S. Thorne, and John A Wheeler
Known world-wide as "MTW". A classic, graduate level textbook on general relativity. Includes both "math-first" and "physics-first" elements. This text covers material for a graduate level course on gravitation physics and general relativity. Topics include flat spacetime, tools of modern geometry, Einstein's geometric framework for physics, applications such as pulsars and neutron stars, cosmology, gravitational collapse, and gravitational waves. It also includes information on experimental tests of General Relativity, superspace, and quantum geometrodynamics.
