One Hundred Years of General Relativity (Volume 1)

  • Description
  • About the Editor
  • The aim of this two-volume title is to give a comprehensive review of one hundred years of development of general relativity and its scientific influences. This unique title provides a broad introduction and review to the fascinating and profound subject of general relativity, its historical development, its important theoretical consequences, gravitational wave detection and applications to astrophysics and cosmology. The series focuses on five aspects of the theory:

    Genesis, Solutions and Energy
    Empirical Foundations
    Gravitational Waves
    Quantum Gravity

    The first three topics are covered in Volume 1 and the remaining two are covered in Volume 2. While this is a two-volume title, it is designed so that each volume can be a standalone reference volume for the related topic.

  • Wei-Tou Ni is a Taiwanese physicist, who graduated from the Department of Physics of National Taiwan University, and got his PhD of Physics & Mathematics from California Institute of Technology.
