I had the privilege and honor to earn my doctorate in Physics at the University of Texas at Dallas where Professor Rindler is a member of the faculty. His course was clear and pragmatic as he introduced the concept of Relativity and the difficult mathematics associated with its development. This text has an increased number of examples and problems than the original text, Essential Relativity. If you are really interested in understanding the modern importance of General Relativity, you will not be disappointed.
Essential Relativity : Special, General, and Cosmological. Also the basic purpose of the book remains the same, and that is to make relativity come alive conceptually. Select Format: Hardcover.

Also the basic purpose of the book remains the same, and that is to make relativity come alive conceptually. I have always felt much sym pathy with Richard Courant's maxim (as reported and exemplified by Pascual Jordan) that, ideally, proofs should be reached by comprehension rather than computation. Where computations are necessary, I have tried to make them as transparent as possible, so as not to hinder the progress of comprehension.

There is some unavoidable overlap of subject matter with my previous book Special Relativity (referred to hereafter as RSR), but the actual duplication is minimal, and many common topics are treated quite differently.

This monograph presents the rationale of multidimensional coordinate systems as the most effective visual tool to understand the behavior of any natural phenomenon from a multidimensional perspective.
In conference after conference the view is expressed that cosmology today is where particle physics was forty years ago, with major discoveries just waiting to happen. Also gravitational wave detectors, presently under construction or in the testing phase, promise to open up an entirely novel field of physics.
