These notes are a transcript of lectures delivered by Oyvind Gron during the spring of 1997 at the University of Oslo. The present version of this document is an extended and corrected version of a set of Lecture Notes which were typesetted by S. Bard, Andreas O. Jaunsen, A Frode Hansen and Ragnvald J. Irgens using LT X2 . Svend E. Hjelmeland has made E many useful suggestions which have improved the text. I would also like to thank Jon Magne Leinaas and Sigbjorn Hervik for contributing with problems, and Gorm Krogh Johnsen for help with nishing the manuscript. I also want to thank prof. Finn Ravndal for inspiring lectures on general relativity. While we hope that these typeset notes are of bene t particularly to students of general relativity and look forward to their comments, we welcome all interested readers and accept all feedback with thanks. All comment may be sent to the author by e-mail.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:“The textbook is self-contained and designed for master students. The book provides an introduction to abstract notations for tensor calculus and differential geometry, in particular the calculus of differential forms.” (Vladimir Dzhunushaliev, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1192, 2010)“This book collects the lecture notes of a course on general relativity … . The text is enriched by a collection of interesting and stimulating exercises, which both allow a working knowledge of the theory and provide further insight into the theory itself and its applications as well. Together with the personal didactical approach taken by the author in his book, these exercises may represent useful hints for a teacher wishing to introduce new ideas in a standard introductory course on general relativity.” (Giovanni Preti, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2011 k)
