The contents of this lecture notes are : Preliminaries,
Differential geometry, Physical laws in curved spacetimes, The Schwarzschild
solution and classic tests of GR, Cosmology, Singularities and geodesic
incompleteness, Linearized theory and gravitational waves.
This book explains the
following topics: Space, Time, and Newtonian Physics, Maxwell, E and M, and the
Ether, Einstein and Inertial Frames, Minkowskian Geometry, Accelerating
Reference Frames, Dynamics, Relativity and the Gravitational Field, General
Relativity and Curved Spacetime, Black Hole, Cosmology.
The reader is
assumed to have but little mathematical knowledge. Topics covered includes:
Geometry and Cosmology, The Fundamental Laws of Classical Mechanics, The
Newtonian World-System, The Fundamental Laws of Optics, The Fundamental Laws
of Electrodynamics and Einstein's Special Principle of Relativity.
The aim of these lecture notes is
to provide a reasonably self-contained introduction to General Relativity,
including a variety of applications of the theory, ranging from the solar system
to gravitational waves, black holes and cosmology. This book covers the
following topics: Physics in a Gravitational Field and General Covariance,
General Relativity and Geometry, Dynamics of the Gravitational Field, General
Relativity and the Solar System, Black Holes, Cosmology, Varia, Kaluza-Klein
