Book Description

These lecture notes are suitable for a one-semester course at the graduate level. Table of contents: Fundamentals; Geodesic congruences; hypersurfaces; Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulations of general relativity; Black holes.

Focusing on conceptual clarity, he derives all the basic results in the simplest way, taking care to explain the physical, philosophical and mathematical ideas at the heart of "the most beautiful of all scientific theories". Some of the main applications of General Relativity are also explored, for example, black holes, gravitational waves and cosmology, and the book concludes with a brief introduction to quantum gravity.
