Practical Relativity: From First Principles to the Theory of Gravity
Practical Relativity is an advanced textbook that aims to emphasize the real applications of relativity and places the topic in the context of experimental science. The 'practical' aspect of the book rests primarily on the author's method of starting at the beginning of the subject and proceeding to advanced material, whilst including all of the stages that lead to important results. This text encompasses an approach that remains as close as possible to familiar concepts of vectors, tensors and reference systems in the hope of capitalizing on received wisdom.
