Book Description:

From the reviews:

"A sophisticated treatment of general relativity with a considerable number of applications to cosmology. … The book may be read in several different ways, depending on the interests of readers. A rich source of material; college libraries should have it on their shelves. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals." (K. L. Schick, CHOICE, Vol. v4 (3), November, 2007)

"This book is a carefully prepared overview about all essential aspects of relativity. Its 5 parts give the standard way to present the material … . Differently from other textbooks, the present authors emphasize much more concrete problems and examples … . The book contains a very large number of formulas, partially due to the fact, that many statements are given both in the old index-notation as well as in the modern index-free notation; I think this is helpful for the readers." (Hans-Jürgen Schmidt, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1126 (3), 2008)

"Even if you already have a sizable collection of books on general relativity, or if you are looking for a good modern book to teach a course from, the text by Grøn and Hervik is … a valuable addition to your collection." (David H. Delphenich, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2008 i)
