Ph. D. in Mathematics or Physics (Relativity)

    Does anyone know whether there is any university having researches on General Relativity itself, not its application in Astrophysics? If so, what mathematics do I need rather than differential geometry?

    If you are seriously interested in general relativity, you cannot ignore astrophysics. There are lots of schools with people doing numerical relativity, exact solutions, quantum gravity, gravitational wave detection, etc. The math you want depends on your interests, from computer science to algebraic topology. Differential topology is probably a must.
