General Relativity Notes
by Edmund Bertschinger
Publisher: MIT 1999
Number of pages: 156
Working with GR, particularly with the Einstein field equations, requires some understanding of differential geometry. In this text we will develop the essential mathematics needed to describe physics in curved spacetime. These notes assume familiarity with special relativity.

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.

We present an introduction to mass and angular momentum in General Relativity. After briefly reviewing energy-momentum for matter fields, first in the flat Minkowski case (Special Relativity) and then in curved spacetimes with or without symmetries.

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.

We present an overview of recent developments concerning modifications of the geometry of space-time to describe various physical processes of interactions among classical and quantum configurations. We concentrate in two main lines of research...
