Download E-books The Scalar-Tensor Theory of Gravitation PDF

By Yasunori Fujii, Kei-ichi Maeda

The scalar-tensor conception of gravitation moved into the limelight in recent times because of advancements in string concept, M-theory and "brane global" structures. This publication introduces the topic at a degree appropriate for either graduate scholars and researchers. It explores scalar fields, putting them in context with a dialogue of Brans-Dicke thought, masking the cosmological consistent challenge, better dimensional space-time, branes and conformal changes.
