Che Geroch abbia capito la Relativita' Einsteiniana come pochi altri lo sapevo. Temevo che il libro fosse un po' datato, sono passati 40 anni. Invece e' un libro ottimo, sembra scritto ieri, formalismo rigoroso ma mai pesante, concetti espressi e spiegati con grande chiarezza, unico appunto la metrica con segnatura positiva, io preferisco la metrica a segnatura negativa, ma e' una preferenza assolutamente personale. Consigliato a tutti coloro che vogliono imparare la Relativita' Generale e soprattutto a chi la deve insegnare nelle universita'.

5.0 su 5 stelle Lovely Survey of Fundamental Ideas 9 dicembre 2015
Di G. A. Schoenagel - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
Previous to my exploration of this interesting book I stumbled upon the Book Review in the December 1979
Journal of General Relativity and Gravitation ( Vol.11, No.5, by Wood): it being hardly favorable, thence to a
brief mention by Physicist John Baez ( paraphrasing Baez, " what is covered is very well explained").
Next up, reading the reviews on Amazon; again, they cover a broad spectrum. (Now, my turn at it.)
Geroch has written a unique exposition at a (semi-) popular level, accessible to most every one who cares to profit.
Profit, that is,from lucid prose, very few equations and a concentration on fundamental conceptions.
Proffered herein: an opportunity to learn basics from a professional researcher and expositor of General Relativity.
Is it plodding ? At times,yes. But, once up and running, all goes by apace.
But, then, in 1978 who else was serving up this kind of perspective on the topic at hand ( topic, that is,of General Relativity) ?
Broken into two Parts : The Space-Time Viewpoint and General Relativity.
(Part One: Keeping the hyphen in 'Space-Time', this is good pedagogy !).
This book should be required reading for undergraduate students whilst preparing for study in further coursework in Relativity.
Robert Geroch delineates a viewpoint neglected in many (if not most) undergraduate physics courses.
(At University, in my four years of undergraduate study, not one Physics professor ever mentioned the word 'Space-Time Interval'
when the subject of Relativity was approached, described or explained. The trend remains to write down the Lorentz Transformations
and then to be finished with the entire subject !).
Therefore, this book does fulfill a need. It did then (when published in 1978), as it does now.
Reading and thinking, however, is a requirement with perusal of this book.
A few words from the author:
"...to summarize, world-lines of particles now acquire time-functions." (Page 80).
"...the Interval is intrinsic to Space-Time..."(Page 91).
"...from the Interval one can determine how light goes and how clocks move and tick..." (Page 112).
"...I see physics as an ongoing process...everything is tentative,confusing,subject to caveats..." (Page 140).
"...Is Space-Time really curved?...One should think of this quantity as simply the mathematical result
of a certain geometrical construction." (Page 170).
"...one thinks of Einstein's equation as being the fundamental thing all by itself..."(Page 176).
And, it goes without saying (or, should) that the final Chapter, Black Holes, is a beautiful rendering ( illustrations with textual exegesis)
of the confluence of all of the previous Chapters: amalgamating Events, Space-Time Interval and Einstein's Equation.
Again, this book is journey's beginning and Geroch offers insight not often expatiated in publications at this level.
The schema of ideas which permeate Relativity, presented by one with sure compass, sure direction.
Highly Recommended as a prelude for students about to embark on further studies in this arena.

Addenda: As of June 2017 Robert Geroch's 1972 Lecture Notes in General Relativity are available on the webpage of the University
of Chicago. These, along with his other available Lecture Notes, are essential study materials for the advanced student of Physics.

5.0 su 5 stelle An Enduring Classic on General Relativity 9 febbraio 2016
Di Robert J Kares - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
In the spring of 1972 when I was an undergraduate at the University of Chicago I had the great good fortune to attend a wonderful course of lectures on General Relativity given by professor Robert P. Geroch who was at that time newly arrived in Chicago from Princeton where he had been a PhD student of John Wheeler. The way in which that course was created remains an absolute amazement to me to this day. Professor Geroch would arrive at the lecture hall armed only with a single small white index card of notes, sometimes none at all, then pick up a piece of chalk and standing at the blackboard create a beautiful, clear explanation of some topic in General Relativity. When he was finished he would return to his office, roll carbon paper into his mechanical typewriter, and capture a prefect written version of the lecture which he had just given, then mimeograph it and hand it out at the next class meeting. As the class progressed through the spring quarter with lecture building upon lecture, a wonderful book on General Relativity took shape. I always expected that the University of Chicago Press would one day publish this book but for some reason it never did, and instead several generations of graduate students have had to content themselves with Xerox copies of these beautiful lecture notes instead. So you can imagine my surprise and delight when browsing Amazon one day to discover that the Minkowski Institute Press has published these notes as a book so that everyone can enjoy and learn from them.

This book is the clearest, most concise introduction to the General Theory of Relativity ever written. Here you will find General Relativity developed from first principles using Geroch’s own unique and justly famous pedagogical approach to the subject. The geometrical spacetime reasoning is very intuitive and leads to a deeply satisfying understanding of the material. The coverage of topics is amazing for such a short volume. All the standard results including the Friedmann universes, the cosmological redshift, the Schwarzschild metric and the bending of light are derived in a compact, and elegant way. But the discussion also includes a large variety of advanced topics not usually found in a book at the introductory level. Chapter 34, for example, presents a simple proof of the singularity theorems that is really delightful.

Any serious student of General Relativity should own this book. And while the book may be read to great benefit on its own, I would suggest if you are a serious student, that you first buy and work through the companion volume, Geroch’s 1972 Differential Geometry lecture notes which are also available in the same series from the Minkowski Institute Press. This is not required for reading the General Relativity lectures but it will certainly increase your understanding and enjoyment of them. And even if you are a mathematically sophisticated reader you should not neglect Geroch’s delightful little non-mathematical book, General Relativity From A to B, University of Chicago Press, which really should be read as a companion to the General Relativity lecture notes.

If you want to learn General Relativity, then buy this book and work through it. You will be amazed at how much you learn in a short period of time, and the enduring value of the approach to the subject that it presents.

4.0 su 5 stelle Classic lecture notes from one of Relativity's great names 6 giugno 2013
Di john d steele - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
As usual with Geroch, his view is lucid, illuminating, slightly different to the usual and all the better for that. It's a welcome addition to the shelf of anyone interested in Relativity, and well worth a look especialy to those of us who've been around a bit.

The only reason I'm not rating it at 5 stars is because the proof-reading has been rather sloppy: there are a larger number of typos than I would normally put up with.

I have great admiration, even reverence for Robert Geroch, and I was thrilled at the prospect of getting this book. The book for sale here is a reprint of his 1972 lecture notes. The reproduction, however, is poor - typos abound, often in the most critical places. Better to consult the PDF image of the original 1972 mimeographs which are available (for free) at [...]

4.0 su 5 stelle Very simple introduction 21 ottobre 2001
Di Muzaffer Muctehitzade - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This book is not a college book on relativity. it is written for curious mind who wants to know something about the relativity and author gives a very layman introduction to it.It starts with space-time concept of Aristotelian, Galilean view and than slowly enters into relativistic view. A lot of space has been delegated to definition and explanation of the concept of Iterval and than jumps into physical meaning of the concepts. It is only as the author says from A to B and no more.
