Gravitation: from Newton to Einstein

Publisher: arXiv.org 2019
Number of pages: 100
This document gathers the notes of a 30-hour review course on gravitation. Its main goal is to propose a big picture of gravitation, where Einstein's relativity arises as a natural increment to Newton's theory. It is designed for bachelor/master students who do not necessarily have prior knowledge about relativity.

In the framework of the special theory of relativity, the relativistic theory of gravitation is constructed. The energy-momentum tensor density of all the matter fields (including gravitational one) is treated as a source of the gravitational field.

This is an elementary introduction to the Theory of Relativity. The intended audience is a class of nonscience undergraduates. Our plan is to follow a pseudo-historical development of how we came to understand the spacetime of General Relativity.

A regular, smooth, and logically consistent introduction to the subject starting with basic facts like Coulomb law and ending with Einstein's theory of gravitation. A book for mathematics students, references to physical intuition are minimized.

In this work the theory of gravitation in flat space-time is summarized. Most of the results of the theory of gravitation in flat space-time are compared with those of general relativity. We only give a small part of the experimental results.
