Starting with the idea of an event and finishing with a description of the
standard big-bang model of the Universe, this textbook provides a clear, concise
and up-to-date introduction to the theory of general relativity, suitable for
final-year undergraduate mathematics or physics students. Throughout, the
emphasis is on the geometric structure of spacetime, rather than the traditional
coordinate-dependent approach. This allows the theory to be pared down and
presented in its simplest and most elegant form. Topics covered include flat
spacetime (special relativity), Maxwell fields, the energy-momentum tensor,
spacetime curvature and gravity, Schwarzschild and Kerr spacetimes, black holes
and singularities, and cosmology. In developing the theory, all physical
assumptions are clearly spelled out and the necessary mathematics is developed
along with the physics. Exercises are provided at the end of each chapter and
key ideas in the text are illustrated with worked examples. Solutions and hints
to selected problems are also provided at the end of the book. This textbook
will enable the student to develop a sound understanding of the theory of
general relativity, and all the necessary mathematical machinery.
