**Gravitation: from Newton to Einstein**

by Pierre Fleury

**Publisher**: arXiv.org 2019**Number of pages**: 100

**Description**:

This document gathers the notes of a 30-hour review course on gravitation. Its main goal is to propose a big picture of gravitation, where Einstein's relativity arises as a natural increment to Newton's theory. It is designed for bachelor/master students who do not necessarily have prior knowledge about relativity.
