Editorial Reviews


"...the theoretical tools for detailed analytical and numerical prediction are becoming increasingly important. Stewart's concise and lucid summary, the only book of its kind, is therefore very timely....a fine and very useful book, which I strongly recommend to all interested in the subject." Malcolm MacCallum, Physics Today

"This is a very well written book, including topics such as spinor algebra, the Newman-Penrose formalism, Dirac spinors, and Lie derivatives. The mathematical proofs are very clear. A large number of exercises make Stewart's text a valuable addition to advanced formal courses in general relativity. The book is also a valuable reference for researchers who have completed their formal education." Joseph Weber, Comments on Astrophysics

"...a good supplement to an advanced general relativity course....a welcome addition to the literature." K.K. Lee, Physics in Canada

Book Description

After reviewing the subject from a geometrical perspective, this self-contained introduction to key topics in advanced general relativity describes 2-component spinor theory, asymptotic theory far from a strong gravitational source and the natural characteristic initial value problem.
