Need examples

  1. Dec 28, 2014 #1
    I am currently learning general relativity and I kind of understand what the symbols in einstein field equationd represent. But I need example like those that involves actual numerical values. I have been trying to search for it online but I cant. So does anyone mind showing me how you apply einstein field equation using really simple example? Or maybe you can recommend me to any source which contains example with actual numbers.

    I don't think numerical values help (how does "0.23" help?), but the easiest non-trivial spacetime is the Schwarzschild solution, this could help to understand how GR leads to something more than mathematics.
