This book depicts the most modern concept of Gravitation, brought forward by Einstein, which differs widely from the Newtonian concept of Gravitation. All ideas relating to Einsteins General Theory of Relativity have been discussed and his famous Equation of Gravitation has been deduced in the simplest possible way. Discussion of Gravitation also includes concepts of Space and Time. The book includes discourses at length about Metric Tensor, Geodesics, and Curvature of Space and Riemann. The book will benefit all the postgraduate students studying Physics and Mathematics and young research scholars, and will help them to form an all-inclusive idea about Space, Time and Gravitation. However the book would be appealing to the general readers as well, as it explicates the tion of Space, Time and Gravitation in a comprehensive and lucid manner.
