This is the webpage for PHYS 5393 Introduction to General Relativity. This is a graduate course that introduces the neophyte to Einstein's theory of general relativity and other topics in the field of gravitation. Einstein’s theory of gravity is a geometrical theory of gravitation and it is also a classical physics theory. Its beauty resides in the relatively simple fundamental concepts upon which it is built. But the price paid for this simplicity is the rather complex and elaborate mathematical formalism that is needed to describe it.
