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 discusses one
of the crowning achievements of modern physics: the General Theory of
Relativity (GR). Major topics covered includes: Special Relativity, Index
Notation, Electromagnetism, Accelerated Motion, Equivalence Principle,
Curved Space and Metrics, Geodesics, Tensors, Black Holes, Einstein Equation
This note covers the
following topics: Principle of Relativity, Lorentz transform, Simultaneous
events, causally connected events, Addition of velocities, 4-vectors: velocity,
energy-momentum, Energy-momentum of photon, Doppler effect, aberration,
Relativistic dynamics, Electromagnetic fields in different frames.
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.
book is written for anybody who is curious about nature and motion. Curiosity
about how people, animals, things, images and empty space move leads to many
adventures. This volume presents the best of them in the domains of fast,
intense and distant motion: relativity and cosmology.
note covers the following topics: Principles of relativity, Time dilation and length contraction, Geometry of
spacetime, The Lorentz transformation, Causality and the interval, Relativistic
