Module overview

General relativity is the theory of spacetime and gravity developed by Einstein. This module aims to develop a geometric understanding of general relativity and explore advanced applications of GR. In particular, we will study the physics of black holes (regions of spacetime which are causally disconnected from the rest of the Universe), uncovering their surprising properties.
