Lecture Notes on General Relativity
Albert Einstein - spacetime diagram for two black holes colliding to become one Einstein with Tagore General Introduction The purpose of this class: This class will provide an overview of the theory of general relativity, Einstein's theory of relativistic gravity, as well as some basic applications, including at least the solar-system tests of gravitational theories,some of the more interesting properties of black holes and gravitational waves, along with some surveys of cosmology. This class will not completely prepare you for research in this area: it will be an overview with insufficient depth for that purpose. However, that is more likely than not exactly what you wanted anyway. The first third to half of the course will focus primarily on the basic structure of the theory, with relevant physical motivation and insight thrown in along the way, and also provide a reasonable introduction to the needed mathematics. You do NOT need to already know more physics and mathematics than is described in the Prerequisite section just below. The major applications will come after that, although perhaps some discussion of motions around spherical stars, and weak gravitational waves will come in the earlier sections.

These lecture notes are a lightly edited version of the ones I handed out while teaching Physics 8. Each of the chapters is available here as PDF. What is even more amazing, the notes have been translated into French by Jacques Fric.

Physics 411: General Relativity
Gefen, Yuval and provides a lucid and thoroughly modern introduction to general relativity.. With an accessible and lively writing style, it introduces modern techniques to what can often be a formal and intimidating subject. Gupta, Rohit K.

Synopsis : Spacetime and Geometry is an introductory textbook on general relativity, specifically aimed at students. Using a lucid style, Carroll first covers the foundations of the theory and mathematical formalism, providing an approachable introduction to what can often be an intimidating subject. Three major applications of general relativity are then discussed: black holes, perturbation theory and gravitational waves, and cosmology. Students will learn the origin of how spacetime curves the Einstein equation and how matter moves through it the geodesic equation.

About this course
Firstly, Thank u for your answer, I think there's something wrong with equation 42 in your chapter 3 exercise 4 b answer, the basis of a vector should be the transformation of the down index, instead of the up index, and then the basis of the dual vector is also wrong. I am a beginner of GR. If there is any mistake, I hope you can correct me. Thank you. Thanks Chun!
