### MIT 8.224 Exploring Black Hole by Prof. Edmund Bertschinger

- einstein field equations
- gravity
- black holestudy 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. 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.

MIT Video Lecture by Prof Edmund Bertschinger about General Relativity and Astrophysics - Excerpt

I have written this text (almost literally) according to the words by Prof Edmund Bertschinger in this MIT Open Course Ware Lecture about "Exploring Black Holes - General Relativity & Astrophysics - Einstein's Field Equations". Although I have checked this text many times, I cannot...Tags: mit ocw video lecture, edmund bertschinger, general relativity and astrophysics, einstein field equations, energy, gravity, gravitational field, electricity-and-gravity, electric fields
