Relativity Book suggestion

  1. May 8, 2015 #1
    I am done with the first year calculus and physics courses and I think maybe I should be going on one subject to improve in that field. What actually is in my mind is I want to learn about a subject in graduate level then go on on this topic in my physics career. I am interested in the evolution of stars and also nuclear physics how the elements are formed etc. Also relativity which is why I study physics actually :D anyway if there are books that i can go through but not like a popular science books i want to learn the calculations.. Thanks for replies :D

    Learn calculus 2 and a world of possibilities opens up. After calculus 2 you can study linear algebra (you meet the prerequisites, however the theory behind it requires mathematical maturity). After learning calculus 2. You can work out of kleppner and kolenkow Intro Mechanics, in preparation for Griffiths EnM.
