General relativity without coordinates

SummaryIn this paper we develop an approach to the theory of Riemannian manifolds which avoids the use of co-ordinates. Curved spaces are approximated by higher-dimensional analogs of polyhedra.

Statistical Black Hole Thermodynamics

Traditional methods from statistical thermodynamics, with appropriate modifications, are used to study several problems in black-hole thermodynamics. Jaynes's maximum-uncertainty method for computing

Introduction to Graph Theory

In graph theory, the term graph refers to a set of vertices and a set of edges. A vertex can be used to represent any object. Graphs may contain undirected or directed edges. An undirected edge is a

Causal sets: Discrete gravity

These are some notes in lieu of the lectures I was scheduled to give, but had to cancel at the last moment. In some places, they are more complete, in others much less so, regrettably. I hope they at

Causality Implies the Lorentz Group

Causality is represented by a partial ordering on Minkowski space, and the group of all automorphisms that preserve this partial ordering is shown to be generated by the inhomogeneous Lorentz group

The four laws of black hole mechanics

Expressions are derived for the mass of a stationary axisymmetric solution of the Einstein equations containing a black hole surrounded by matter and for the difference in mass between two
