Are There Any Good Books on Relativity Theory?
 The Physics FAQs guide to relativity books; by Chris Hillman (with contributions by Nathan Urban). An extensive annotated list of semipopular books, textbooks and background reading.
Cambridge Relativity Public Home Page
 Various pages with nontechnical texts about cosmology, black holes, cosmic strings, inflation, quantum cosmology, and string theory, written by members of the Relativity Group at Cambridge University.
Einstein Online
 Information about Einstein's theories of special and general relativity and their applications; site is hosted by the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics. Includes a simple introduction, a collection of articles ("Spotlights on relativity"), and a relativistic dictionary.
An Essay on General Relativity
 Overview of the basic ideas and principal applications of general relativity. Written by John L. Safko for students in the selfpaced astronomy courses at the University of South Carolina in 1997.
Interactive Experiments in Gravity
 Try an experiment that illustrates the gravitational attraction between two objects or use a Java applet to understand how orbits work in strongly curved spacetime.
Interactive Geometric Database
 Interactive database developed by Mustapha Ishak and Kayll Lake and hosted by Queen's University; allows the user to search for specific solutions of Einstein's field equations (that is, for specific model universes of general relativity).
Introduction to General Relativity
 By Gerard 't Hooft (Utrecht University); based on lectures held in 2002; a thorough introduction starting with accelerated frames and including topics such as black holes, the basics of cosmology, and gravitational radiation.
The Light Cone: An Illuminating Introduction to Relativity
 Introduces the basic principles of relativity, the physics of special relativity, and some basic principles of general relativity. Contains a great number of helpful images and animations; site created by Rob Salgado (Syracuse University).
NOVA Online/Einstein Revealed
 Profile of Albert Einstein, with additional teaching resources, Shockwave demonstrations, and animations of relativity concepts.
The Physical Construction of Time
 Papers by Igor Zlobin that analyze time deceleration effect as predicted by both relativity and special relativity theories. Some papers are in English and Russia, others only in Russian.
Physics Bookshelf  Relativity
 A collection of articles about relativity
Relativity
 Provides information on the history, experiments and paradoxes of relativity.
Relativity bookmarks
 Large collection of relativityrelated links by Rob Salgado (Syracuse University). Warning: page hasn't been updated since 2000, and quite a number of links are now broken.
Relativity: List of Important Equations
 Page scans from the Handbook of Space Astronomy and Astrophysics giving equations and formulas for special relativity and relativistic cosmology. Includes bibliography.
Relativity: Special, General, and Cosmological
 Sample chapters from the classical textbook by Wolfgang Rindler, as part of a "limited preview" on Google Books.
Spacetime  General Relativity, Quantum Gravity, and the Existence of Time
 A brief summary of Spacetime Theories at the beginning of the Third Millennium, and of the possibility that we live in an essentially atemporal universe.
Wikipedia: General Relativity Resources
 Annotated list of reading material about general relativity: popular books, textbooks, books on specific topics, web courses, and websites.
Wikipedia: Introduction to General Relativity
 Encyclopedia article explaining the basic concepts, observational tests and (astrophysical) applications of general relativity.
General Relativity Simulation Contest
 Attempt at a content aimed at the Internet community to write a simulation program, based on a simple algorithm incorporating the laws of general relativity, that can realistically simulate the behavior of black holes, binary stars, and the twin paradox. (December 28, 2005)
Numerical Relativity: Status and Prospects
 Review article by Luis Lehner about the foundations of numerical relativity and recent progress in the field; particular attention is paid to simulations of black hole spacetimes. (February 19, 2002)
Subtle is the Gravity
 Review of the motivations for and basic principles of general relativity, aimed at a general audience. Written by Naresh Dadhich (IUCAA Pune), based on a lecture delivered in 2001. (February 03, 2001)
Gravitational Waves and Black Holes: An Introduction to General Relativity
 An introduction by JanWillem van Holten (NIKHEF, Amsterdam), based on lectures given at the University of Heidelberg in 1997. (April 15, 1997)
