About this product
- DescriptionSelf-contained and comprehensive, this definitive new edition of Gravity and Strings is a unique resource for graduate students and researchers in theoretical physics. From basic differential geometry through to the construction and study of black-hole and black-brane solutions in quantum gravity - via all the intermediate stages - this book provides a complete overview of the intersection of gravity, supergravity, and superstrings. Now fully revised, this second edition covers an extensive array of topics, including new material on n-linear electric-magnetic duality, the electric-tensor formalism, matter-coupled supergravity, supersymmetric solutions, the geometries of scalar manifolds appearing in 4- and 5-dimensional supergravities, and much more. Covering reviews of important solutions and numerous solution-generating techniques, and accompanied by an exhaustive index and bibliography, this is an exceptional reference work.
- Author BiographyTomas Ortin is a Research Professor at the Institute for Theoretical Physics (IFT), a joint institute of the Autonomous University of Madrid and the Spanish National Research Council (UAM-CSIC). He has previously worked at the European Laboratory for Particle Physics (CERN), held postdoctoral positions at Stanford University, Queen Mary University of London. and has taught several graduate courses on advanced general relativity. His research interests include string theory, gravity, quantum gravity, and black-hole physics.
