Study of physical effects in the vicinity of a black hole as a basis for understanding general relativity, astrophysics, and elements of cosmology. Extension to current developments in theory and observation. Topics include: energy and momentum in flat spacetime; the metric; curvature of spacetime near rotating and nonrotating centers of attraction; trajectories and orbits of particles and light; elementary models of the Cosmos. Weekly meetings include an evening seminar and recitation. The last third of the semester is reserved for collaborative research projects on topics such as the Global Positioning System, solar system tests of relativity, descending into a black hole, gravitational lensing, gravitational waves, Gravity Probe B, and more advanced models of the Cosmos. *NOTE: Sessions 3, 4, 6, 7, 9, 11, 14 have no video. Four were recitations, an exam review, and a project review. The remaining three were because the speakers did not give permission to be published.

Great! But...

Why are some episodes missing?

Sad Fibonacci

Wish they were all there, but if you have to skip some, take out week ten and include week three :)
