Gravity and Light
Gravity and Light (2015, The WE-Heraeus International Winter School). Instructor: Dr. Frederic P. Schuller. As part of the world-wide celebrations of the 100th anniversary of Einstein's theory of general relativity and
the International Year of Light 2015, the Scientific Organizing Committee makes available the central 24 lectures by Frederic P. Schuller.
Titled "A thorough introduction to the theory of general relativity", the lectures introduce the mathematical and physical foundations of the theory in 24 self-contained lectures. The material is developed step by step from first principles and aims at an audience ranging from ambitious undergraduate students to beginning PhD students in mathematics and physics.
Satellite Lectures by Bernard F Schutz (Gravitational Waves), Domenico Giulini (Canonical Formulation of Gravity), Marcus C Werner (Gravitational Lensing) and Valeria Pettorino (Cosmic Microwave Background) expand on the topics of this central lecture course and take students to the research frontier.
