Research Interests
Over the years Professor Rindler has contributed to the study of horizons in cosmology, to the toy-black-hole wedge in flat spacetime, to the application of spinors and twistors in general relativity, to aspects of Mach's principle and especially to anti-Mach phenomena, to the topology of exact gravitational waves and of the big bang, to novel phase space representations of the Friedman cosmologies, to calculational devices in axisymmetric spacetimes, and more. He also authored or co-authored seven books, several of which have been translated into foreign languages (Russian, Japanese, etc.)
