Dersin Amaçları
General Relativity is the theory of spacetime and gravitation proposed by Einstein in 1915. It remains at the centre of theoretical physics research, with applications ranging from astrophysics to string theory. This course will introduce the theory using a modern, geometric, approach.
Dersin Tanımı
This is an undergraduate level introductory General Relativity course
Dersin Çıktıları
Önkoşullar
This course will be selfcontained, so previous knowledge of General Relativity (GR) is not essential. However, as it is an elective course, I assume that the students have some very introductary knowledge in GR. If you have not studied GR before, then I strongly recommend that you study an introductory book, i.e. Hartle's Gravity: An Introduction to Einstein's General Relativity. Familiarity with
i. Newtonian Gravity
ii. Special Relativity
iii. Classical Mechanics
iv. Relativistic formulation of electrodynamics
v. Finitedimensional vector spaces
are essential.

We have weekly homework. Late homework will never be accepted. Homework not submitted online before the deadline are considered late. Homework solutions must be typeset using Latex.
You may discuss homework problems with other students, but you must write up your homework independently in your own words.
The exams may or may not be takehome. If not, by default, all exams (midterms and final) are closed book, and you are not allowed to use any electronic devices such as mobiles and tablets
Regular attendance is essential and expected. A student who incurs an excessive number of absences may be withdrawn from the class at the instructor's discretion.
Be courteous when using mobile devices. Make sure your cell phone is turned fully off, or silent. No texting, reading emails, playing games, or whatever else it is that people do with those wretched gizmos.
If you must use a laptop in class, then turn off the sound and do not type on laptop keyboards which is really distracting.
Missing one class could easily lead to a disastrous domino effect. If you have to miss a lecture, then I strongly recommend you study the material you missed before you return to class. I require that you know all material covered in class. You are responsible for making up anything that was covered in lectures you missed
