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.

This book was written as a guide for a one week course aimed at exceptional students in their final years of secondary education. The course was intended to provide a quick but nontrivial introduction to Einstein's general theory of relativity.

Notes of lectures for graduate students, covering the theory of linearized gravitational waves, their sources, and the prospects at the time for detecting gravitational waves. The lectures remain of interest for pedagogical reasons.

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.
