**General Relativity Notes**

by Edmund Bertschinger

**Publisher**: MIT 1999**Number of pages**: 156

**Description**:

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.
