This course has two aims. Aim 1 – To explain how Einstein s theory models gravitation as the curvature of space-time. This involves setting up. Based on a course given at Oxford over many years, this book is a short and concise exposition of the central ideas of general relativity. In December, , I had the pleasure of reviewing the admirable book, Special Relativity, by N. M. J. Woodhouse, and now I have the.

Alex marked it as to-read Jun 28, At centre stage are the “local inertial coordinates” set up by an observer in free fall, in which special relativity is valid over short times and distances. The latter chapters include the theoretical background to contemporary observational tests – in particular the detection of gravitational waves and the verification of the Lens-Thirring precession – and some introductory cosmology, to tempt the reader to further study.
