This is the only book I found which gave a detailed derivation of some of the most important solutions to Einstein's equations concerning black holes.

Lots of other properties of different types of black holes are covered in this book in great rigour. Undoubtedly a bible for research students in General Relativity!Cited by: This volume has become one of the modern classics of relativity theory.

The analytical methods on which the theory is based are reviewed, and a space-time of sufficient generality to encompass the different situations arising in the study of black holes is developed. The Schwarzschild space-time and the perturbations of the Schwarzschild black hole are : S.

This is to derive the mathematical theory of black holes, which is succeeds to do and explores several frontiers. The general mathematical introduction is rigorous but you can follow along if you are exposed to the notation of general relativity.

At the time of writing there was no physical evidence for the existence of these objects, therefore all that Professor Chandrasekhar used for their construction were modern mathematical concepts of space and time/5(14).

Full Description: "Now in paperback, this book by Nobel prizewinner S. Chandrasekhar, is devoted to the mathematical theory of the space-times surrounding the black holes of nature.

Since the general theory of relativity provides a single unique family of solutions (the Kerr family) for black holes, the subject is mathematically a very well defined one.

Amazingly enough, many aspects of black holes can be understood by using simple algebra and pre-algebra mathematical skills. This booklet fills the gap by presenting black hole concepts in their simplest mathematical form. General Approach: The activities are organized according to progressive difficulty in mathematics.
