Introduction to General Relativity

Edwin F. Taylor and
John Archibald Wheeler

Addison Wesley Longman Albert Einstein told us that a star or other massive object distorts spacetime in its vicinity. Sufficient distortion makes it impossible to describe matter and motion with the single "inertial reference frame" used in Newton's theory of mechanics and Einstein's theory of special relativity. General relativity describes the distortion of spacetime near a star, white dwarf, neutron star, or black hole and predicts the resulting motion of stones, satellites, and light flashes. Learning general relativity usually requires mastering Einstein's field equations, which are expressed in the complicated mathematics of tensors or differential forms. But big chunks of general relativity require only calculus if one starts with the metric describing spacetime around Earth or black hole. Expressions for energy and angular momentum follow, along with predictions for the motions of particles and light. Students study the Global Positioning system, precession of Mercury's orbit, gravitational red shift, orbits of light and deflection of light by Sun, the gravitational retardation of light, and frame-dragging near a rotating body.

85. Special And General Relativity - New Mathematical Formulations
Presentation of new mathematical formulations for both the Special and General Theories of Relativity.
SPECIAL AND GENERAL RELATIVITY - NEW MATHEMATICAL FORMULATIONS The purpose of this site is the presentation of a new simplified mathematical formulation of Albert Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity, and the introduction of a new theory of Gravity. The content is therefore of a technical nature, requiring a good knowledge of mathematics, physics and applied mechanics up to graduate level. Links to Papers etc RELATIVITY GRAVITY COSMOLOGY Links to other web sites of a related nature Links PDF versions of all papers PDF The current literature on these theories primarily works with such techniques as Riemannian Geometry and the Tensor Calculus etc., and while these are extremely powerful mathematical tools, they are also very complex. Therefore, when applied to Einstein's two most well known theories, they result in a formulation quite difficult to follow for even the most accomplished post graduate student. In the presentations here, nothing more complex than first and second order differential equations of functions of a complex variable are used to initially develop the above theories from first principles. This forms the basis from which additional papers are developed extending the technique into further relativistic, gravitational and cosmological matters. The latter includes the development of a mathematically rigorous new theory for the origin and existence of the Universe. Note - In some papers the mathematical nomenclature uses a special font to represent a certain parameter. Within the text this may not display correctly, being replaced by a standard font, (For those who wish to display this parameter correctly, the necessary font is here

An introduction to general relativity
Next: Introduction
The Meaning of Einstein's Equation

Riverside, California 92521
March 10, 2001
Also available in Postscript.
This is a brief introduction to general relativity, designed for both students and teachers of the subject. While there are many excellent expositions of general relativity, few adequately explain the geometrical meaning of the basic equation of the theory: Einstein's equation. Here we give a simple formulation of this equation in terms of the motion of freely falling test particles. We also sketch some of its consequences, and explain how the formulation given here is equivalent to the usual one in terms of tensors. Finally, we include an annotated bibliography of books, articles and websites suitable for the student of relativity.

Riemannian Geometry and General Relativity
(Differential Geometry-2, MTH 3412, Winter 1997 )
Professor M.Shubin
Course Description:
Riemannian geometry is designed to describe the universe of creatures who live on a curved surface or in a curved space and do not know about the world of higher dimensions or do not have any access to it. One of the main notions of the Riemannian geometry is the notion of connection, which is, in fact, the key notion of the entire geometry, though it is not always explicitly formulated. The connection (or parallel transport) allows to compare what is happening at two distant points of a curved space, in spite of the fact that there is no direct and immediate way to communicate between these points. Recently connections appeared in the theory of gauge fields which is considered a basis of the modern physics of elementary particles. Earlier, in the 1910's, A.Einstein discovered that the Riemannian geometry can be successfully used to describe General Relativity which is in fact a classical theory of gravitation. (Here the word ``classical" stands as opposite to ``quantum", but the quantum theory of gravitation is still terra incognita!) By its intrinsic beauty, as well as by wealth of applications the Riemannian geometry lies at the core of modern mathematics.

94. General Relativity
General Theory of Relativity. Just as moving clocks run slow, general relativity predicts that clocks in gravitational fields run slow.
General Theory of Relativity
Click here to go to the UPSCALE home page. Click here to go to the JPU200Y home page. Click here to go to the Physics Virtual Bookshelf. Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity of 1905 concerns itself with observers who are in uniform relative motion. His General Theory of Relativity of 1916 considers observers in any state of relative motion including acceleration. It will turn out that this will also be a theory of gravitation. This document introduces the General Theory of Relativity.
Three "Easy" Pieces
Einstein used three different pieces to built the General Theory of Relativity, which we describe here.
Piece 1 - Geometry is Physics
Consider the figure to the right, which shows a distant star, the Sun, and the Earth. Clearly the figure is not drawn to scale. There is a straight dotted line connecting the star and the Earth. Imagine a light ray that leaves the star along the dotted line: it is headed directly for the Earth. However, we know that E = m c . And since the light that left the star has energy, we now know that it also has a mass. And

Gravity and Time.
Consider three clocks. Clocks 1 and 2 are mounted on a rotating disk, with clock 1 exactly at the centre, and clock 2 fixed on the rim, and clock 3 is sitting at rest with respect to the centre of the disk. Note that the disk exerts a force on clock 2 which forces it to follow a circular path; since, without this force, clock 2 would move in a straight line, it is clear that the force and the resultant acceleration are both directed towards the centre of the disk. Clocks 1 and 3 are not moving relative to one another (there is some rotation involved, but their relative position in space does not change with time); thus, as far as Special Relativity is concerned, they keep the same time. However, clock 2 is moving with respect to clock 3; thus clock 2 is running slow as seen by clock 3. Since clocks 1 and 3 keep the same time, this means that clock 2 runs slow compared to clock 1, even though clocks 1 and 2 have no relative translatory motion. (Note that, since clock 2 is not in an inertial frame, Special Relativity does not make any statement about its timekeeping - this is a new effect) . Finally, consider a clock situated on the disk somewhere between clocks 1 and 2; the acceleration of such a clock is less than that of clock 2, and since it is also moving more slowly than clock 2, it is running less slowly.

96. Spacetime Relativity
This is an alternate cosmology not based on general relativity.
Cosmology - The science or theory of the universe as an ordered whole, and of the general laws which govern it. Also, a particular account or system of the universe and its laws. - Oxford English Dictionary Welcome to my web site! This site was developed to share a different cosmology with people who are interested. We are in a golden age of astronomy and cosmology. New observations and data about the universe are coming in at a fast rate. My ideas, are mostly qualitative in nature, and are speculative. The hypothesis is called Spacetime Relativity and is very similar to the Big Bang theory, but uses a different interpretation of the cosmological redshift. I have tried to develop more quantitative ideas to test my hypothesis over the past year, which I have included in the most recent version of spacetime relativity. A new idea has little value to science if it cannot be tested in some way. A few alternate cosmologies have offered very little competition to the Big Bang theory, because any new idea needs to be consistent with current observations. Basically the hypothesis is very similar to the Big Bang with a few key differences. The nature of Time and Space being the biggest differences.* I have been asked a few questions over the past few months so I have added another page (More on Time) concerning time. Hope this will clear up some of the questions.

general relativity The second part of relativity is general relativity and lies on two empirical findings that he elevated to the status of basic postulates.
General Relativity The second part of relativity is general relativity and lies on two empirical findings that he elevated to the status of basic postulates. The first postulate is the relativity principle: local physics is governed by the theory of special relativity. The second postulate is the equivalence principle: there is no way for an observer to distinguish locally between gravity and acceleration. The primary result from general relativity is that gravitation is a purely geometric consequence of the properties of spacetime. In this sense, general relativity is a field theory, relating Newton's law of gravity to the field nature of spacetime. Orbit in curved spacetime There were two classical test of general relativity, the first was that light should be deflected by passing close to a massive body. The first opportunity occurred during a total eclipse of the Sun in 1919. Measurements of stellar positions near the darkened solar limb proved Einstein was right. Direct confirmation of gravitational lensing was obtained by the Hubble Space Telescope last year.

1.0 Introduction
[More about relativity] Einstein's Special theory of Relativity is fundamental to physics and yet there seems to be a lack of work that addresses the question "What kind of universe would behave like that?".
This article addresses that question and begins to work toward a new interpretation of relativity. The material results from an inquiry into the nature of relativistic phenomena and discusses the feasibility of generating a basic model in which these phenomena can be seen to occur as a natural consequence of the model instead of appearing as paradoxical. 1.1 Rationale

We have developed a code which links the primeval fluctuations in the early universe with those observable at the present time by integrating the coupled, linearized, Einstein, Boltzmann, and fluid equations governing the evolution of metric perturbations and density fluctuations; this is the most accurate treatment to date of both the physics and the numerical integration. The results are useful both for calculations of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) anisotropy and the linear power spectrum of matter fluctuations. The serial code (LINGER) is highly efficient on vector machines. Furthermore, this application is perfectly suited for coarse-grained parallelism. A portable, parallel implementation (PLINGER) using common message-passing libraries (PVM, MPI, MPL, and PVMe) has been completed; it achieves Gflop/sec rates on current parallel supercomputers such as the T3D and SP2. LINGER and PLINGER are publically available as part of the COSMICS software package.
