**Dynamical and Hamiltonian Formulation of General Relativity**

by Domenico Giulini

**Publisher**: arXiv.org 2015**Number of pages**: 76

**Description**:

This contribution introduces the reader to the reformulation of Einstein's field equations of General Relativity as a constrained evolutionary system of Hamiltonian type and discusses some of its uses, together with some technical and conceptual aspects. Attempts were made to keep the presentation self contained and accessible to first-year graduate students.
