The Theory Of Gravity

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 is treated as a source of the gravitational field. The energy-momentum and the angular momentum conservation laws are fulfilled in this theory. Such an approach permits us to unambiguously construct the gravitational field theory as a gauge theory.

Which geometries on a smooth manifold can serve as a spacetime structure? This question is comprehensively addressed from first principles, exploring the kinematics and gravitational dynamics of all tensorial geometries on a smooth manifold.

Aimed at people who do not know enough physics to understand what Einstein did and why it was so important. The course presents just enough of Einstein's physics to give students an independent sense of what he achieved and what he did not achieve.

The main goal of this document 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 students who do not necessarily have prior knowledge about relativity.

We may consider Geometry as a first attempt at a study of the outside world. It may be considered as a system which reflects our experiences with features of the outside world, namely features connected with the displacements of rigid bodies.
