The research of recent years has provided considerable clarity and insight on stellar collapse, black holes and the nature and structure of spacetime singularities. In this text, the authors discuss several of these developments here.

Lecture notes on introductory general relativity for beginning graduate students in physics. Topics include manifolds, Riemannian geometry, Einstein's equations, and three applications: gravitational radiation, black holes, and cosmology.

This course is meant as introduction to what is widely considered to be the most beautiful and imaginative physical theory ever devised: General Relativity. It is assumed that you have a reasonable knowledge of Special Relativity as well as tensors.

General relativity is outlined as the classical field theory of gravity, emphasizing physical phenomena rather than mathematical formalism. Dynamical solutions representing traveling waves and stationary fields of black holes are discussed.
