**The Geometry of General Relativity**

by Tevian Dray

**Publisher**: Oregon State University 2014**Number of pages**: 158

**Description**:

The manuscript emphasizes the use of differential forms, rather than tensors, which are barely mentioned. The focus is on the basic examples, namely the Schwarzschild black hole and the Friedmann-Robertson-Walker cosmological models. The material should be suitable for both advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students in both mathematics and physics.

**Space, Time and Gravitation: An Outline of the General Relativity Theory**

by

**Arthur Stanley Eddington**-

**Cambridge University Press**

The author gives an account of general relativity theory without introducing anything very technical in the way of mathematics, physics, or philosophy. It is hoped that the book may also appeal to those who have gone into the subject more deeply.
