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 self-paced astronomy courses at the University of South Carolina in 1997.
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 semi-popular books, textbooks and background reading.
Cambridge Relativity Public Home Page
- Various pages with non-technical texts about cosmology, black holes, cosmic strings, inflation, quantum cosmology, and string theory, written by members of the Relativity Group at Cambridge University.
- 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.
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 space-time.
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.
NOVA Online/Einstein Revealed
- Profile of Albert Einstein, with additional teaching resources, Shockwave demonstrations, and animations of relativity concepts.
Physics Bookshelf - Relativity
- A collection of articles about relativity
- Provides information on the history, experiments and paradoxes of relativity.
- Large collection of relativity-related 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.
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).
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.
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 Jan-Willem van Holten (NIKHEF, Amsterdam), based on lectures given at the University of Heidelberg in 1997. (April 15, 1997)
