This book provides a completely revised and expanded version of the previous classic edition ´General Relativity and Relativistic Astrophysics´. In Part I the foundations of general relativity are thoroughly developed, while Part II is devoted to tests of general relativity and many of its applications. Binary pulsars - our best laboratories for general relativity - are studied in considerable detail. An introduction to gravitational lensing theory is included as well, so as to make the current literature on the subject accessible to readers. Considerable attention is devoted to the study of compact objects, especially to black holes. This includes a detailed derivation of the Kerr solution, Israel´s proof of his uniqueness theorem, and a derivation of the basic laws of black hole physics. Part II ends with Witten´s proof of the positive energy theorem, which is presented in detail, together with the required tools on spin structures and spinor analysis. In Part III, all of the differential geometric tools required are developed in detail. A great deal of effort went into refining and improving the text for the new edition. New material has been added, including a chapter on cosmology. The book addresses undergraduate and graduate students in physics, astrophysics and mathematics. It utilizes a very well structured approach, which should help it continue to be a standard work for a modern treatment of gravitational physics. The clear presentation of differential geometry also makes it useful for work on string theory and other fields of physics, classical as well as quantum.
List of Contributors: The Rev. Prof. Heerak Christian Kim is Adjunct Professor of Asia Evangelical College and Seminary in Bangalore, India. Professor Kim was the Lady Davis Fellow in the State of Israel from 1996 to 1997, and is the author of many important books, among which is The Jerusalem Tradition in the Late Second Temple Period (2007). He has researched at UCLA, University of Pennsylvania, Brown University, Harvard University, Cambridge University, Heidelberg University, and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The Rev. Prof. Young Mog Song is Lecturer of New Testament at Kosin University in Pusan, South Korea. Prof. Song holds Th.M. from Potchefstroom University and a Doctorate in Philosophy and Literature from the University of Johannesburg in South Africa. Professor Yong-Sun Yang teaches Systematic Theology at Wesley Institute in Sydney, Australia. Prof. Yang´s journey began with an academic training in mathematics, which developed into a professional interest in economics. Gradually, interest in economics led Prof. Yang to an interest in philosophy and, finally, in theology. Prof. Yang lives in Sydney with his wife, Mi-Hea, three daughters, So-Ra, So-Ri and Ha-Neul, and one son, Jeong-Hun. Sunwoo Hwang received his B.A. from Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea. Then, he went to the United States, and received M.Div. from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and S.T.M. in Old Testament from Yale University Divinity School. He then made an academic pilgrimage to Edinburgh, Scotland, and he is currently in the process of completing his Ph.D. in Hebrew and the Old Testament at the University of Edinburgh. 1.
