The renaissance of general relativity and cosmology : a survey to celebrate the 65th birthday of Dennis Sciama [EBook] / [edited by] George Ellis, Antonio Lanza, John Miller.
The past forty years have been a time of spectacular development in the study of general relativity and cosmology. A special role in this has been played by the influential research groups led by Dennis Sciama in Cambridge, Oxford, and Trieste. In April 1992 many of his exstudents and collaborators...
