Lecture Notes - Introduction to GR

  1. Jul 16, 2010 #1
    I would like to know if anyone who had a good introductory GR course would mind sending me the scanned lectures notes if this person has them.
    I think textbooks have too many words and I prefer to study lecture notes.
    I am sorry if this was not the correct place for my post.

    I don't know what you mean by "to many words", but Sean Carroll's notes are for me personally the best notes to start with GR. The perfect balance between math and physics.

    Have you tried them? Did they work for you? In firefox, with NoScript set to allow standford.edu, when I click on the links to the videos, it opens this page [ http://www6.slac.stanford.edu/video.aspx [Broken] ] with the message "The video you requested is an older format that is not currently being supported by SLAC. Please contact the Office of Communications for more information."
