Course Description

Course DescriptionThis is a graduate course at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai, intended primarily for students in the Department of Theoretical Physics.

Several textbooks will be used during the course. A list of textbooks on this subject can be found here or by visiting the links section:

One book I might end up following closely is ''General Relativity'' by Robert Wald. The list of contents of this book is a reasonable guide to what I intend to present in the course:
- Introduction
- Manifolds and Tensor Fields
- Curvature
- Einstein's Equation
- The Schwarzschild Solution
- Homogeneous, Isotropic Cosmology

Another textbook recommended is a friendly introduction to general relativity, called "Spacetime and Geometry" by Sean Carroll. It can be found under the Read Textbook button.
