The time-time component of Einstein's field equations for general relativity relate energy density to the geometry of space.

Using this energy density, Professor Susskind presents the thermodynamic equation of state which relates the energy density to pressure.

$\begingroup$ I know you don't want to hear it but I think Wick Rotation is really the right thing. The connection between the classical world and the quantum one is the path integral, through the action. This connects the partition function to the generating function and you're done, baring the Wick rotation.

Description of the book "Cosmology": This book is unique in the detailed, self-contained, and comprehensive treatment that it gives to the ideas and formulas that are used and tested in modern cosmological research. It divides into two parts, each of which provides enough material for a one-semester graduate course.

General Relativity and Cosmology. This book explains the following topics: Frames of Reference, Newtonian Relativity, Einsteinian Relativity, Geometry of Flat Spacetime, Electrodynamics in Special Relativity.

First, the book introduces special relativity in a simple way. What does "relativity" mean. accessible manner. Traditionally, cosmology was taught, as it was to me, as the tail end of a general relativity course, with a derivation ofthe metric for an expanding Universe and a few solutions.

Such a course fails to capture the flavour of modem cosmology, which takes classic physical sciences like thermodynamics, atomic physics and. Relativity, Thermodynamics and Cosmology Richard C.

General Relativity is a graduate textbook and reference on Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity written by the gravitational Hawking radiation, and black-hole thermodynamics.

Topics that deserve more attention include gravitational radiation and cosmology. However, this book can be supplemented by those by Misner, Thorne, and Author: Robert Wald.

Translated from the. A generally relativistic theory of thermodynamics is developed, based on four main physical principles: heat is a local form of energy, therefore described by a thermal energy tensor; conservation of mass, equivalent to conservation of heat, or the local first law; entropy is a local current; and non-destruction of entropy, or the local second law.

A fluid is defined by the thermostatic energy.
