The internet has a wide array of resources to
learn general relativity and keep up with recent research. This
page only attempts to hit some of the highlights, not to be comprehensive.
See Relativity on
the World Wide Web
or some of the other web guides below for further links.
This page is still under construction, sorry for the mess. I will try to
update or remove links as they evolve, so please let me know if a link
dies.
GR Tensor
A symbolic tensor manipulation program. Originally developed for
Maple, a Mathematica version is now available. There is even a
java
version you can run remotely.
Applications of Classical Physics, Roger Blandford and Kip Thorne
An illuminating overview of topics in classical physics by two masters.
(Advanced undergraduate level; GR is covered briefly at the end.)
Gravitational Waves: A Web-Based Course, Kip Thorne
A detailed introduction to gravitational wave production and detection.
Includes notes, videos of lectures, exercises, and supplemental material.
Fields, Warren Siegel
An introduction to quantum field theory, including discussions of
supersymmetry and string theory.
gr-qc at arxiv.org
The indispensable preprint server, containing essentially all
respectable contemporary research papers. "gr-qc" stands for "general
relativity and quantum cosmology"; look for related servers in
astrophysics (astro-ph),
high-energy theory and string theory
(hep-th),
and mathematics
(math).
SPIRES High-Energy
Physics Literature Database
A service which not only indexes papers, but keeps track of references and
citations. Nominally devoted to high-energy physics, but gradually expanding
to keep track of gravitation and astrophysics.
Relativity on the World Wide Web, UC Riverside
A carefully reviewed and annotated list of links, originally prepared
by Chris Hillman and maintained by John Baez.
Relativity Bookmarks, Syracuse University
Includes a long list of research groups in GR.
