About the Author

THOMAS A. MOORE is a Professor in the physics department of Pomona College, California, USA.


'Moore's workbook makes General Relativity accessible to undergraduates who have seen little or none of the underlying mathematical framework. This is achieved not by watering down the contents, but rather by systematically guiding readers to work everything out themselves until they own the concepts and the mathematical techniques. It is indeed a workbook, which I trust will be a great success.' - Sergio Picozzi, University of Maryland, USA 'With its clean organization, its direct and clear prose, and especially its pedagogically effective workbook format, Moore's A General Relativity Workbook may quickly become the new standard for upper division undergraduate courses in General Relativity.' -John Mallinckrodt, Cal Poly Pomona, USA 'Not since Misner, Wheeler & Thorne has there been such a useful resource.' - Paul McKenna, Glasgow Caledonian University, UK
