Hi, An intimate understanding of GR/SR is on my "bucket list" and I'm trying to find the best relativity book that has accompanying code to walk through hand-on examples of the physics/mathematics. I've looked around pretty extensively and I've found a few contenders:
Mathematica for Theoretical Physics: Electrodynamics, Quantum Mechanics, General Relativity, and Fractals. This seems pretty old and I'm worried that if I get the latest Mathematica home edition it won't be compatible with the code from back in 2005.
Gravity: An Introduction to Einstein's General Relativity. This book has a website with a few mathematica codes but it's not a full blown code book
General Relativity and Cosmology using Mathematica This looks very promising but isn't completed yet.
Any thoughts on the best code resource for walking through SR/GR or votes for books  and ?
OGRe: An Object-Oriented General Relativity Package for Mathematica
If you have not had a course in GR before nor a firm grounding in differential geometry (tensor calculus), then I strongly recommend Thomas Moore's excellent book A General Relativity Workbook, University Science Books, 2013, ISBN 978-1-891389-82-5,
This book does not have any associated Mathematica notebooks; however, it is easy to implement Mathematica where it is needed, especially for things like orbital precession, and the deflection of photons. I have several notebooks drawn from Moore's book that I would be willing to share.
I am also interested. Can you let me know what you decide? I looked at the reviews for both 1 and 2 but I am also concerned that 1 might be using an outdated version of Mathematica.
Have you looked through Wolfram Books Physics section? There are 85 items there currently. In the recent listed you can see:
by Pietro Giuseppe Frè. I did not go through the whole 85 books but you probably should.
Hi thanks! Unfortunately I have looked in this section but I'm looking for a more systematic treatment like the books listed above.
Have a look at the Wolfram Library Archive on general relativity: http://library.wolfram.com/infocenter/BySubject/Science/Physics/Relativity/
