About this product
- DescriptionCanical methods are a powerful mathematical tool within the field of gravitational research, both theoretical and experimental, and have contributed to a number of recent developments in physics. Providing mathematical foundations as well as physical applications, this is the first systematic explanation of canical methods in gravity. The book discusses the mathematical and geometrical tions underlying canical tools, highlighting their applications in all aspects of gravitational research from advanced mathematical foundations to modern applications in cosmology and black hole physics. The main canical formulations, including the Arwitt-Deser-Misner (ADM) formalism and Ashtekar variables, are derived and discussed. Ideal for both graduate students and researchers, this book provides a link between standard introductions to general relativity and advanced expositions of black hole physics, theoretical cosmology or quantum gravity.
- Author BiographyMartin Bojowald is an Associate Professor at the Institute for Gravitation and the Cosmos, Pennsylvania State University. He pioneered loop quantum cosmology, a field on which his research continues to focus.
