La verdad es que no entiendo a qué tanto negar el interés de la cuestión. ,----[ http://pup.princeton.edu/titles/5635.html ] | Winner of the 1996 Association of American Publishers Award for Best | Professional/Scholarly Book in Physics and Astronomy | | Gravitation and Inertia | | Ignazio Ciufolini and John Archibald Wheeler | | Cloth | 1995 | $80.00 / £55.00 | 576 pp. | 6 x 9 | 15 halftones 60 line illus. 6 tables | | Einstein's standard and battle-tested geometric theory | of gravity--spacetime tells mass how to move and mass tells spacetime | how to curve--is expounded in this book by Ignazio Ciufolini and John | Wheeler. They give special attention to the theory's observational | checks and to two of its consequences: the predicted existence of | gravitomagnetism and the origin of inertia (local inertial frames) in | Einstein's general relativity: inertia here arises from mass there. | | The authors explain the modern understanding of the link between | gravitation and inertia in Einstein's theory, from the origin of | inertia in some cosmological models of the universe, to the | interpretation of the initial value formulation of Einstein's standard | geometrodynamics; and from the devices and the methods used to | determine the local inertial frames of reference, to the experiments | used to detect and measure the "dragging of inertial frames of | reference." In this book, Ciufolini and Wheeler emphasize present, | past, and proposed tests of gravitational interaction, metric | theories, and general relativity. They describe the numerous | confirmations of the foundations of geometrodynamics and some proposed | experiments, including space missions, to test some of its fundamental | predictions--in particular gravitomagnetic field or "dragging of | inertial frames" and gravitational waves. | | Reviews: | | "[An] admirably comprehensive guide. . . .The approach is leavened | with historical perspectives and almost poetic insights. Particularly | valuable [are] the up to date accounts of experimental tests of | general relativity."--Robert Matthews, New Scientist | | ". . . it has plenty of useful resources and ideas and it is | enjoyable. It covers, sometimes with distinctive originality, topics | not easily found in other textbooks. Its charm lies in the | interweaving of Wheeler's speculative quest for the physical origin of | inertia with Ciufolini's experimental craft. In such interweaving lies | the magic of an extraordinarily beautiful science: the science of the | shape of space-time."--Carlo Rovelli, Science | | "In this important work, Ciufolini and Wheeler provide extensive | coverage of current gravitation theory, current problems of interest | to the physics community, and recent and proposed experiments based | upon Einstein's theory of general relativity."--Choice | | "This is an excellent book that will be of interest to anyone | seriously interested in general relativity. It is clearly written with | a very well connected development of many topics which are not covered | in the other books on the subject."--Classical and Quantum Gravity | | "Gravitation and Inertia has plenty of useful resources and ideas and | it is enjoyable. It covers, sometimes with distinctive originality, | topics not easily found in other textbooks. Its charm lies in the | interweaving of Wheeler's speculative quest for the physical origin of | inertia with Ciufolini's experimental craft.
