**Semi-Riemann Geometry and General Relativity**

by Shlomo Sternberg

2003**Number of pages**: 251

**Description**:

This book represents course notes for a one semester course at the undergraduate level giving an introduction to Riemannian geometry and its principal physical application, Einsteinâ€™s theory of general relativity. The background assumed is a good grounding in linear algebra and in advanced calculus, preferably in the language of differential forms.
