General Theory Of Relativity

  1. Feb 23, 2005 #1
    I am interested in learning the general theory of relativity, and I want to know if someone here would be willing to take the time to teach it to me. I have heard that it is a theory of gravity. On the down side I don't know tensor mathematics very well, nor do I like it, but on the up side I do learn pretty fast, if the information is presented logically.

    Thank you

    It all boils down to:
    [tex]G_{\mu\nu}+\Lambda g_{\mu\nu}=\frac{8\pi G}{c^{4}}\Theta_{\mu\nu} [/tex]

    You're welcome.:smile:Sorry i couldn't provide any more help.
    Maybe someone else more knowledgeable would...

    Daniel.

    EDIT:Thanks Tom,i felt it was smth.fishy... :tongue2: I wouldn't have posted more,anyway.

    Dexter, it's just an alias for Physicsguru. Let's not feed the trolls. :wink:
