Part III (MMath/MASt)

These courses provide a thorough introduction to General Relativity and Cosmology. The Michaelmas term courses introduce these subjects, which are then developed in more detail in the Lent term courses on Black Holes and Advanced Cosmology. A non-examinable course explores the application of spinor techniques in General Relativity.

Please find here the introduction and pre-requisites for the Relativity and Gravitation course group.
