Space, Time and Gravitation: An Outline of the General Relativity Theory
by Arthur Stanley Eddington
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 1920
Number of pages: 219
The author gives an account of general relativity theory without introducing anything very technical in the way of mathematics, physics, or philosophy. Although primarily designed for readers without technical knowledge of the subject, it is hoped that the book may also appeal to those who have gone into the subject more deeply.

Working with GR requires some understanding of differential geometry. In this text we will develop the essential mathematics needed to describe physics in curved spacetime. These notes assume familiarity with special relativity.

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...

General relativity is outlined as the classical field theory of gravity, emphasizing physical phenomena rather than mathematical formalism. Dynamical solutions representing traveling waves and stationary fields of black holes are discussed.

This book was written as a guide for a one week course aimed at exceptional students in their final years of secondary education. The course was intended to provide a quick but nontrivial introduction to Einstein's general theory of relativity.
