Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

As with a lot of people, I have been excited and fascinated by the field equations Einstein described, revealing the curvature of spacetime. I would like to create a computer simulation which simulates the effects of the Einstein Field Equations, in other words, the curvature of spacetime by objects of a certain mass (stars, black holes, binary star systems, etc...). I have the knowledge and the tools to program such a simulation, however I am not familiar with the EFE. I would like someone to help me point out the mathemetical and physical knowledge I have to have in order to understand them. I am already somewhat familar with tensors, and some 3D geometry. Can someone give me a list of required mathematical theorems and tools which I should study in order to understand th EFE?

Thank you
