IMPORTANT: Due to some CSC event hapenning tomorrow at 11:00, the first session of the GR marathon will start at 9:30 instead.
Howdy! This page will be dedicated for the "General Relativity Marathon", a magical secret seminar that will happen every Saturday at 10:00 - 11:15 in RIII Seminar Room.
The topic of this seminar is The theory of general relativity. I'll be updating this page with relevant material: mainly the lectures notes I'll be writing for this seminar, as well as presentation slides when needed, some resources/links/books and whatever I found to be of aid in my understanding of the theory. Let's see how this goes!
Resources I found useful in order of usefulness:
Books: General Relativity by Wald, Spacetime and Geometry by Carol, Gravitation by Misner Thorne and Wheeler.
|Session Date||Topic||Link to notes/slides|
