A RELATIVISTS TOOLKIT FREE DOWNLOAD

The chapter on the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulations of general relativity is the best I have seen in any book published so far; it provides the details that Wald and Carroll either neglect or gloss over in their textbooks. Also, shows the details to get the Hamilton equations from Hilbert’s action. This is one of the few book discussing the Gibbons-York-Hawking term. Try the Kindle edition and experience these great reading features: Chapter 3 is a thorough discussion of hypersurfaces and its geometries. This textbook fills a gap in the literature on general relativity by providing the advanced student with practical tools for the computation of many physically interesting quantities.
