Metric Relativity and the Dynamical Bridge: highlights of Riemannian geometry in physics
by Mario Novello, Eduardo Bittencourt
Publisher: arXiv 2015
Number of pages: 121
We present an overview of recent developments concerning modifications of the geometry of space-time to describe various physical processes of interactions among classical and quantum configurations. We concentrate in two main lines of research: the Metric Relativity and the Dynamical Bridge.

These notes introduce the theory of rotating stars in general relativity. The focus is on the theoretical foundations, with a detailed discussion of the spacetime symmetries, the choice of coordinates and the derivation of the equations of structure.

This text reviews the development of Einstein's thought on general covariance (the fundamental physical principle of GTR), its relation to the foundations of general relativity and the evolution of the continuing debate over his viewpoint.

Gravitational-wave (GW) science has entered a new era. Theoretically, the last years have been characterized by numerous major advances. These lectures are envisioned to be an introductory, basic course in gravitational-wave physics.
