Gravitation: from Newton to Einstein
by Pierre Fleury
Publisher: arXiv.org 2019
Number of pages: 100
This document gathers the notes of a 30-hour review course on gravitation. Its main goal 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 bachelor/master students who do not necessarily have prior knowledge about relativity.

This book examines the evolution of the principle of relativity in its classical, special, and general incarnations, with the aim of showing how it has repeatedly inspired advances in our understanding of the physical world.

In this contribution, the authors assess the current experimental status of Special and General Relativity. Particular emphasis is put on putative extensions of these theories and on how these could be detected experimentally.

This is an elementary introduction to the Theory of Relativity. The intended audience is a class of nonscience undergraduates. Our plan is to follow a pseudo-historical development of how we came to understand the spacetime of General Relativity.
