DOC: SPACETIME GEOMETRY AND GENERAL RELATIVITY


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 well-known as the brain-child of Einstein who developed it most or less single-handedly in the years leading up to its publication in 1915.... Document/File: .pdf, filesize: n/a. Filetype: pdf. Filename: spacetime-geometry-and-general-relativity. Title: Spacetime Geometry and General Relativity. 2014.

TO TEST THIS HYPOTHESIS MORE RIGOROUSLY, ...
