PHYS 4093 Introduction to General Relativity


(3 hours)
A review of special relativity, Lorentz transformations, causality, and a survey of differential geometry and topology with the intention of applying these mathematics topics to curved spacetime. The course will continue on to cover metric theory, Einstein’s equation, solutions of Einstein’s equation, matter dynamics in curved spacetime, models of cosmology, and a brief description of compact objects (e.g., black holes and neutron stars). Prerequisites: PHYS 4003  and PHYS 4063 .
