**All Spacetimes Beyond Einstein**

by Frederic P. Schuller

**Publisher**: arXiv 2011**Number of pages**: 44

**Description**:

Which geometries on a smooth manifold (apart from Lorentzian metrics) can serve as a spacetime structure? This question is comprehensively addressed from first principles in eight lectures, exploring the kinematics and gravitational dynamics of all tensorial geometries on a smooth manifold that can carry predictive matter equations, are time-orientable, and allow to distinguish positive from negative particle energies.
