Alberto A. García-Díaz is Emeritus Professor at the Center for Research and Advanced Studies of the National Polytechnic Institute, Mexico (CINVESTAV-IPN). His research throughout his career has focused on algebraic classification in four dimensional gravity, nonlinear electrodynamics and dilaton fields.
'2+1 dimensions is the lowest dimension in which Einstein gravity works, and it exhibits some interesting features, such as space-time being flat where there is no matter. The topic has been studied for about 50 years, and there are, remarkably, large numbers of exact solutions that have been found. This book presents a comprehensive account of them, including a section on topologically massive gravity. It is obviously a labour of love, which runs to over 400 pages, and which will be of interest to relativists, providing links between the solutions and those for the more familiar 3+1 space- time.' Alan Heavens, The Observatory
