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.

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 reoativity special relativity with the equivalence principle.
