    Fields Institute Communications
    Volume: 151997; 373 pp
    MSC: Primary 83; Secondary 85;

    This volume is the refereed proceedings of the Sixth Canadian Conference on General Relativity and Relativistic Astrophysics held in May 1995 at the University of New Brunswick. The book includes invited talks and contributed talks and posters including state-of-the-art reviews of many of the most recent important developments in gravitational physics. This book would serve as a good supplement to standard texts on the topic.

    Features:

    • Review articles in key areas: black holes, numerical relativity, etc.
    • Contributions covering most of gravitational physics.
    • Useful articles for students who wish to begin exploring the issues discussed.
    • Invited talks given by researchers known for their ability to communicate their expertise.

    Titles in this series are co-published with the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences (Toronto, Ontario, Canada).

    Readership

    Graduate students, mathematicians, theoretical and mathematical physicists interested in general relativity and high energy physics; astrophysicists, astronomers, and differential geometers.
