Based on a course given at Oxford over many years, this book is a short and concise exposition of the central ideas of general relativity.

The focus is on the chain of reasoning that leads to the relativistic theory from the analysis of distance and time measurements in wooshouse presence of gravity, rather than on the underlying mathematical structure.

Although the original audience was made up of mathematics students, the focus is on the chain of reasoning that leads to the relativistic theory from the analysis of distance and time measurements in the presence of gravity, rather than on the underlying mathematical structure.

The geometric ideas – which are central to the understanding of the nature rlativity gravity – are introduced in parallel with the development of the theory, the emphasis being on laying bare how one is led to pseudo-Riemannian geometry woodhuose a natural process of reconciliation of special relativity with the equivalence principle. Xoanon93 added it May 03, The basic theory is presented using techniques, such as phase-plane analysis, that will already be familiar to mathematics undergraduates, and numerous problems, of varying levels of difficulty, are provided to test understanding.
