General Relativity Video Lectures, Notes, and Exercises

About The Professor

I am interested in progress toward a deeper and more complete understanding of gravitation. We have an extensive understanding of the other three fundamental forces in the Standard Model (SM) in terms of local gauge theories formulated on a fixed Lorentz invariant background spacetime. General Relativity (GR) promotes gravitation to a special role among the fundamental forces in that it is relational or background-independent, i.e. the background spacetime is a dynamical degree of freedom in GR.
