Announcement: Due to Jacobs Games and the Alumni Homecoming happening during the weekend, there will be no GRM session this week.

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.

Online lectures: What is a Tensor? , What is a Manifold? , What is General Relativity? series by XylyXylyX, General Relativity by Alexander Maloney, General Relativity by Leonard Suskind
