Mathematical Foundations of General Relativity



This course introduces students to the tools of modern differential geometry, focusing on Riemannian and Lorentzian geometries. The course also covers covariant derivatives, tensors, curvature, and geodesic curves with emphasis on modern coordinate-free methods of computation. It presents physical models of general relativity, such as black holes, gravitational lensing and cosmological models.
