Introduction to general relativity, black holes, and cosmology by
Yvonne ChoquetBruhat(
)
19 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 982 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"General Relativity is a beautiful geometric theory, simple in its mathematical formulation but leading to numerous consequences with striking physical interpretations: gravitational waves, black holes, cosmological models, and so on. This introductory textbook is written for mathematics students interested in physics and physics students interested in exact mathematical formulations (or for anyone with a scientific mind who is curious to know more of the world we live in), recent remarkable experimental and observational results which confirm the theory are clearly described and no specialised physics knowledge is required. The mathematical level of Part A is aimed at undergraduate students and could be the basis for a course on General Relativity. Part B is more advanced, but still does not require sophisticated mathematics."Publisher's website

Analysis, manifolds and physics by
Yvonne ChoquetBruhat(
)
12 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Twelve problems have been added to the first edition; four of them are supplements to problems in the first edition. The others deal with issues that have become important, since the first edition of Volume II, in recent developments of various areas of physics. All the problems have their foundations in volume 1 of the 2Volume set Analysis, Manifolds and Physics. It would have been prohibitively expensive to insert the new problems at their respective places. They are grouped together at the end of this volume, their logical place is indicated by a number of parenthesis following the title

Physics on manifolds : proceedings of the international colloquium in honour of Yvonne ChoquetBruhat, Paris, June 35, 1992 by
M Flato(
Book

7 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume contains the proceedings of the Colloquium "Analysis, Manifolds and Physics" organized in honour of Yvonne ChoquetBruhat by her friends, collaborators and former students, on June 3, 4 and 5, 1992 in Paris. Its title accurately reflects the domains to which Yvonne ChoquetBruhat has made essential contributions. Since the rise of General Relativity, the geometry of Manifolds has become a nontrivial part of spacetime physics. At the same time, Functional Analysis has been of enormous importance in Quantum Mechanics, and Quantum Field Theory. Its role becomes decisive when one considers the global behaviour of solutions of differential systems on manifolds. In this sense, General Relativity is an exceptional theory in which the solutions of a highly nonlinear system of partial differential equations define by themselves the very manifold on which they are supposed to exist. This is why a solution of Einstein's equations cannot be physically interpreted before its global behaviour is known, taking into account the entire hypothetical underlying manifold. In her youth, Yvonne ChoquetBruhat contributed in a spectacular way to this domain stretching between physics and mathematics, when she gave the proof of the existence of solutions to Einstein's equations on differential manifolds of a quite general type. The methods she created have been worked out by the French school of mathematics, principally by Jean Leray. Her first proof of the local existence and uniqueness of solutions of Einstein's equations inspired Jean Leray's theory of general hyperbolic systems
