The Mathematical Theory of Black Holes
S. Chandrasekhar (Author)
DescriptionThis volume has become one of the modern classics of relativity theory. When it was written in 1983 there was little physical evidence for the existence of black holes. Recent discoveries have only served to underscore the elegant theory developed here, and the book remains one of the clearest statements of the relevant mathematics.
