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.

Julio Andrade marked it as to-read Mar 14, 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.
The geometric ideas – which are central to the understanding of the nature of gravity – are introduced in parallel with the development of the theory, the emphasis being on laying bare how one is led to pseudo-Riemannian geometry through a natural process of reconciliation of special relativity with the equivalence principle. In more practical terms, the book is a sequel to the author’s Special Relativity in the same series, with some overlap in the treatment of tensors.
