A relativist's toolkit : the mathematics of blackhole mechanics by
Eric Poisson(
)
23 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 848 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This textbook fills a gap in the existing literature on general relativity by providing the advanced student with practical tools for the computation of many physically interesting quantities. The context is provided by the mathematical theory of black holes: one of the most elegant, successful, and relevant applications of general relativity." "Although the book is selfcontained, it is not meant to serve as an introduction to general relativity. Instead, it is meant to help the reader acquire advanced skills and become a competent researcher in relativity and gravitational physics. The primary readership consists of graduate students in gravitational physics. The book will also be a useful reference to more seasoned researchers working in this field."Jacket

Gravity : Newtonian, postNewtonian, relativistic by
Eric Poisson(
Book
)
13 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This textbook explores approximate solutions to general relativity and their consequences. It offers a unique presentation of Einstein's theory by developing powerful methods that can be applied to astrophysical systems. Beginning with a uniquely thorough treatment of Newtonian gravity, the book develops postNewtonian and postMinkowskian approximation methods to obtain weakfield solutions to the Einstein field equations. The book explores the motion of selfgravitating bodies, the physics of gravitational waves, and the impact of radiative losses on gravitating systems. It concludes with a brief overview of alternative theories of gravity. Ideal for graduate courses on general relativity and relativistic astrophysics, the book examines reallife applications, such as planetary motion around the Sun, the timing of binary pulsars, and gravitational waves emitted by binary black holes. Text boxes explore related topics and provide historical context, and over 100 exercises present challenging tests of the material covered in the main text"
