Invariance Principles & Extended Gravity : Theory & Probes Hardback
This book presents information on the study of gravitational theories which can be seen as modifications or extensions of General Relativity.
The basic principles that a gravitational theory should follow, and their geometrical interpretation, are analysed in a broad perspective which highlights the basic assumptions of General Relativity and suggests possible modifications.
In particular, the invariance principles that are related to the gravitational field are presented, showing how gravity can emerge as a gauge theory.
Also, the boundle approach to gravity and derive geometrical quantities which intervene in the construction of gravitational field are discussed.
