More About Moshe Carmeli, Lydia G. Cochrane, Nancy Barrineau, Margaret R. Higonnet, David Fox Sandmel, Rita Ackermann, George Jones & Scott Silsby
Moshe Carmeli is Albert Einstein Emeritus Professor of Theoretical Physics at Ben Gurion University in Israel. He is the author of numerous research articles and texts, such as Group Theory and General Relativity and Classical Fields. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences, and has been the President of the Israel Physical Society. He has spent many years in the United States doing research and teaching. Among the people he worked with are C.N. Yang at the State University of New York, Stony Brook and Abdus Salam at the International Center for Theoretical Physics, Trieste. Much of his efforts in latest years were devoted to develop a new general relativity theory that is based not on the propagation of light as the starting point in Einstein's theory, but on the expansion of the Universe, thus obtaining a space-velocity theory that is later on extended to include the time dimension, making it a five-dimensional Brane World theory.
Reviews - What do customers think about Classical Fields?
Pedagocially the best Apr 23, 2008
This book is a classic. It is written for the trained expert in field theory and those aspiring to be so. Carmeli has a very pedagocially clear style of teaching. He progressively develops his treatise, introducing the reader to the concepts as he advances through the book. Recommended for those interested in the fundamentals of field theory, details of general relativity, tensors, geodesics, gravitation, gauge fields, etc.
