Relativity: Special, General, and Cosmological

Wolfgang Rindler is known as a writer of exceptional clarity. This quality is evident in this book as it explores in depth first special relativity, then general relativity, and finally relativistic

Coordinate-free classic geometries

This paper is devoted to a coordinate-free approach to several classic geometries such as hyperbolic (real, complex, quaternionic), elliptic (spherical, Fubini-Study), and lorentzian (de Sitter, anti

Grassmannians and Conformal Structure on Absolutes

We study grassmannians associated with a linear space with a nondegenerate hermitian form. The geometry of these grassmannians allows us to explain the relation between a (pseudo-)riemannian

An overview of Patterson-Sullivan theory

Let M be a complete Riemannian manifold with negative sectional curvature. Then the universal cover X of M is diffeomorphic to a Euclidean space and may be geometrically compactified by adding to it


Based on four lectures the authors gave in Almora on flat Lorentzian manifolds, these notes are an introduction to Lorentzian three-manifolds. In particular, we provide examples of quotients of

Differential geometry of grassmannians and the Plücker map

Using the Plücker map between grassmannians, basic aspects of classic grassmannian geometries are studied and some facts are proved that were previously known in the ‘elliptic’ case.

Complex Hyperbolic Structures on Disc Bundles over Surfaces I. General Settings. A Series of Examples

We study complex hyperbolic disc bundles over closed orientable surfaces that arise from discrete and faithful representations H_n->PU(2,1), where H_n is the fundamental group of the orbifold
