Spacetime and Geometry is a graduate-level textbook on general relativity. It is exactly the same book , just with a different cover. Buy it: Amazon. A lonely, uncompensated, perhaps even impossible Task, yet some of us must ever be seeking, I suppose. In I taught a one-semester graduate course in general relativity at MIT. Along the way I typed up a detailed set of lecture notes. The book Spacetime and Geometry is a significantly revised and expanded version of these notes; about half of the finished book is completely new.
These lecture notes are a lightly edited version of the ones I handed out while teaching Physics 8. Each of the chapters is available here as PDF. What is even more amazing, the notes have been translated into French by Jacques Fric. Je ne parle pas francais, mais cette traduction devrait etre bonne. Dates refer to the last nontrivial modification of the corresponding file fixing typos doesn't count. Note that, unlike the book, no real effort has been made to fix errata in these notes, so be sure to check your equations.
General Relativity is an indisputable elegant edifice of pure geometry that replaces the Newtonian theory and, as its name suggests, takes into account Special Relativity. It plays a central role in the description of many astrophysical objects such as black holes or pulsars as well as in our understanding of the Universe in its entirety. We present here a basic introduction to General Relativity prepared for a four-month, graduate-level course in the EPFL 14 weeks. The students are assumed to be familiar with Classical Mechanics and Special Relativity, without any prior knowledge of Classical Field Theory. The notes are thought to be pedagogical and physically oriented. The ubiquitous tensors will be introduced in the familiar context of classical mechanics and electromagnetism. The transition to curved spacetime will be motivated by physical concepts such as the equivalence principle or the existence of tidal forces.
Sean Michael Carroll born October 5, is a theoretical physicist specializing in quantum mechanics , gravity , and cosmology. Carroll is the author of Spacetime And Geometry , a graduate-level textbook in general relativity, and has also recorded lectures for The Great Courses on cosmology, the physics of time, and the Higgs boson. He began a podcast in called Mindscape, in which he interviews other experts and intellectuals coming from a variety of disciplines, including "[s]cience, society, philosophy, culture, arts, and ideas" in general. In , Carroll was elected fellow of the American Physical Society for "contributions to a wide variety of subjects in cosmology , relativity , and quantum field theory , especially ideas for cosmic acceleration , as well as contributions to undergraduate, graduate, and public science education". Carroll has worked on a number of areas of theoretical cosmology, field theory and gravitation theory.

Synopsis : Spacetime and Geometry is an introductory textbook on general relativity, specifically aimed at students. Using a lucid style, Carroll first covers the foundations of the theory and mathematical formalism, providing an approachable introduction to what can often be an intimidating subject. Three major applications of general relativity are then discussed: black holes, perturbation theory and gravitational waves, and cosmology.
Albert Einstein - spacetime diagram for two black holes colliding to become one Einstein with Tagore General Introduction The purpose of this class: This class will provide an overview of the theory of general relativity, Einstein's theory of relativistic gravity, as well as some basic applications, including at least the solar-system tests of gravitational theories,some of the more interesting properties of black holes and gravitational waves, along with some surveys of cosmology. This class will not completely prepare you for research in this area: it will be an overview with insufficient depth for that purpose. However, that is more likely than not exactly what you wanted anyway. The first third to half of the course will focus primarily on the basic structure of the theory, with relevant physical motivation and insight thrown in along the way, and also provide a reasonable introduction to the needed mathematics. You do NOT need to already know more physics and mathematics than is described in the Prerequisite section just below. The major applications will come after that, although perhaps some discussion of motions around spherical stars, and weak gravitational waves will come in the earlier sections.
Причастие. Он застонал. Проклятые испанцы начинают службу с причастия. ГЛАВА 92 Сьюзан начала спускаться по лестнице в подсобное помещение. Густые клубы пара окутывали корпус ТРАНСТЕКСТА, ступеньки лестницы были влажными от конденсации, она едва не упала, поскользнувшись. Она нервничала, гадая, сколько еще времени продержится ТРАНСТЕКСТ. Сирены продолжали завывать; то и дело вспыхивали сигнальные огни.
Сьюзан протянула карточку и приготовилась ждать обычные полминуты. Офицер пропустил удостоверение через подключенный к компьютеру сканер, потом наконец взглянул на. - Спасибо, мисс Флетчер. - Он подал едва заметный знак, и ворота распахнулись. Проехав еще полмили, Сьюзан подверглась той же процедуре перед столь же внушительной оградой, по которой был пропущен электрический ток. Давайте же, ребята… уже миллион раз вы меня проверяли.
На авиалиниях работают одни бездушные бюрократы. У меня нет денег на новый билет. - Где твои родители? - спросил Беккер.
Что подумают люди. - В шифровалке проблемы.
