A College Course on Relativity and Cosmology

Ta-Pei Cheng

  • Solutions manual available on request from the OUP website
  • Written specifically for an undergraduate audience.
  • In contrast to the traditional pedagogy the authors use a "physics-first" approach to the subject - introducing difficult mathematics gradually so that students get to study the interesting physical and astronomical applications at an early stage.
  • Extensive treatment of cosmology and detailed discussion of special relativity.
  • Review questions and exercises throughout the text give students the opportunity to test their learning.
