Publisher: arXiv 2009
Number of pages: 114
We present a self-contained introduction to the classical theory of spacetime and fields. The order of the presentation is: 1. Spacetime (tensors, affine connection, curvature, metric, tetrad and spin connection, Lorentz group, spinors), 2. Fields (principle of least action, action for gravitational field, matter, symmetries and conservation laws, gravitational field equations, spinor fields, electromagnetic field).

This text 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.

Neutrosophy is a theory developed by Florentin Smarandache in 1995, which studies the nature and properties of neutralities. This book applies neutrosophic method to the General Theory of Relativity, aiming to discover new effects hidden before.

Gravitational-wave (GW) science has entered a new era. Theoretically, the last years have been characterized by numerous major advances. These lectures are envisioned to be an introductory, basic course in gravitational-wave physics.

The status of experimental tests of general relativity and of theoretical frameworks for analyzing them are reviewed and updated. Tests of general relativity have reached high precision, including the light deflection, the Shapiro time delay, etc.
