Explores some of the discrepancies in Einstein's general theory of relativity that have come to light in the past few years under investigation by nonlinear methods. The 25 papers, from a workshop in Kananaski, Alberta, July 1993, primarily share perspectives with others working specifically on such problems, but also introduce scientists working with general relativity to the new methods and findings. They cover the mathematical preliminaries, compact relativistic systems, cosmological systems, and Bianchi IX (Mixmaster) dynamics. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
