8.224 Exploring Black Holes: General Relativity and Astrophysics
8.224 Exploring Black Holes: General Relativity and Astrophysics (Spring 2003, MIT OCW). Instructors: Prof. Edmund Bertschinger and Prof. Edwin Taylor. Study of physical effects in the vicinity of a black hole as a basis for understanding general relativity, astrophysics, and elements of cosmology. Extension to current developments in theory and observation. Energy and momentum in flat spacetime; the metric; curvature of spacetime near rotating and nonrotating centers of attraction; trajectories and orbits of particles and light; elementary models of the Cosmos.
