This text provides a comprehensive and timely introduction to general relativity. The foundations of the theory in Part I are thoroughly developed together with the required mathematical background… Expand

A generalized Birkhoff theorem for the Einstein–Yang–Mills system

- O. Brodbeck, N. Straumann
- Mathematics
- 1 June 1993

Some results of a systematic study of the coupled Einstein–Yang–Mills (EYM) equations for arbitrary gauge groups are presented herein. In a first step a group theoretical analysis of spherically… Expand

Instability proof for Einstein Yang-Mills solitons and black holes with arbitrary gauge groups

- O. Brodbeck, N. Straumann
- Physics
- 22 November 1994

We prove that static, spherically symmetric, asymptotically flat soliton and black hole solutions of the Einstein–Yang–Mills equations are unstable for arbitrary gauge groups, at least for the… Expand

The history of the cosmological constant problem

- N. Straumann
- Physics
- 13 August 2002

The interesting early history of the cosmological term is reviewed, beginning with its introduction by Einstein in 1917 and ending with two papers of Zel'dovich, shortly before the advent of… Expand

Gauge theory: Historical origins and some modern developments

- L. O'raifeartaigh, N. Straumann
- Physics
- 2000

One of the major developments of twentieth-century physics has been the gradual recognition that a common feature of the known fundamental interactions is their gauge structure. In this article the… Expand

On the first Solvay Congress in 1911

- N. Straumann
- Physics
- 17 September 2011

Late in October 1911, eighteen leading scientists from all over Europe met to the first of a famous sequence of Solvay conferences in Brussels. This historical meeting was mainly devoted to “The… Expand

From primordial quantum fluctuations to the anisotropies of the cosmic microwave background radiation

- N. Straumann
- Physics
- 30 May 2005

These lecture notes cover mainly three connected topics. In the first part we give a detailed treatment of cosmological perturbation theory. The second part is devoted to cosmological inflation and… Expand

On Newton-Cartan Cosmology ∗

- Christian Ruede, N. Straumann
- Physics
- 1996

Abstract. After a brief summary of the Newton-Cartan theory in a form which emphasizes its close analogy togeneral relativity, we illustrate the theory with selective applications in cosmology. The… Expand
