General relativity GR ) or General theory of relativity GTR ) is the geometric theory of gravitation published by Albert Einstein in 1915/16. It unifies special relativity Newton's law of universal gravitation , and the insight that gravitational acceleration can be described by the curvature of space and time , this latter being produced by the mass energy and momentum content of the matter in spacetime General relativity is distinguished from other metric theories of gravitation by its use of the Einstein field equations to relate spacetime content and spacetime curvature. The field equations are a system of partial differential equations whose solution gives the metric tensor of spacetime, describing its "shape". In the resulting geometry, an object moving inertially in a gravitational field is viewed as following a geodesic path that may be found using the Christoffel symbols of the metric.

    Remarks on General Relativity
    Michael Fowler
    University of Virginia
    Relativity: the Special and the General Theory
    , he introduces general relativity with a parable. He imagines going into deep space, far away from gravitational fields, where any body moving at steady speed in a straight line will continue in that state for a very long time. Einstein points out that there will be no gravity, the observer will tend to float around inside the room. How does all this look to the man in the room? If he releases anything, it accelerates towards the floor, and in fact all bodies accelerate at the same rate. Just then he would discover the hook and rope, and conclude that the room was suspended by the rope. Einstein asks: should we just smile at this misguided soul? In other words, being inside the (from an outside perspective) uniformly accelerating room is physically equivalent to being in a uniform gravitational field This is the basic postulate of general relativity. Special relativity said that all inertial frames were equivalent. General relativity extends this to accelerating frames, and states their equivalence to frames in which there is a gravitational field.

    5. General Relativity Or Newtonian Tidal Effects?

    In this paper, theoretical tidal effects are derived, (similar to the earth-moon system), and then orbital precession comparisons are made with GR for twenty-two celestial bodies. TOP OF PAGE INTRODUCTION Six prior papers investigated the orbital precessions of the planet Mercury, the moon, the major satellites of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and four binary stars. Special attention was given to the possibility that Newtonian tidal effects may account for excess precession, rather than resorting to general relativity for explanations. In this paper, theoretical tidal effects are derived, (similar to the earth-moon system), and then orbital precession comparisons are made with general relativity for twenty-two celestial bodies. TOP OF PAGE SUMMARY 1) Quite surprisingly, the derived nominal tidal effects model duplicates general relativity precessions for all celestial bodies in the solar system. However, for two binary stars, (DI Herculis and AS Camelopardalis), GR predicts double the measured orbital precessions, while the NTE model duplicates the measured values. The results of this investigation indicate that NTE provides better correlation with measured orbital precessions than does GR. 2) For the binary pulsar, (PSR1913+16), GR duplicates the measured orbital precession of 422 degrees per century, with a solar mass combination of 1.4/1.4 and assuming both bodies are neutron stars. With neutron stars the extreme density excludes NTE, which calculates to be only 189 degrees per century. However, a solar mass combination of 4.17/2.5 also duplicates the orbit of PSR1913+16, with NTE producing the measured 422 degrees per century. The 4.17 solar mass might be a neutron star, but the hidden component (2.5 solar mass) could be capable of producing the NTE precession. For this latter mass combination NTE excludes GR, which now calculates to be 727 degrees per century.

    General relativity is a theory of gravitation and to understand the background to the theory we have to look at how theories of gravitation developed. Aristotle 's notion of the motion of bodies impeded understanding of gravitation for a long time. He believed that force could only be applied by contact; force at a distance being impossible, and a constant force was required to maintain a body in uniform motion. Copernicus 's view of the solar system was important as it allowed sensible consideration of gravitation. Kepler 's laws of planetary motion and Galileo 's understanding of the motion and falling bodies set the scene for Newton 's theory of gravity which was presented in the Principia in 1687. Newton 's law of gravitation is expressed by F G M M d where F is the force between the bodies of masses M M and d is the distance between them. G is the universal gravitational constant. After receiving their definitive analytic form from Euler Newton 's axioms of motion were reworked by Lagrange Hamilton , and Jacobi into very powerful and general methods, which employed new analytic quantities, such as potential, related to force but remote from everyday experience.

    ज्ञानकोश: - The Indological Knowledgebase General relativity (GR) or general relativity theory (GRT) is the theory of gravitation published by Albert Einstein in . The conceptual core of general relativity, from which its other consequences largely follow, is the Principle of Equivalence , which describes gravitation and acceleration as different perspectives of the same thing, and which was originally stated by Einstein in as:
    We shall therefore assume the complete physical equivalence of a gravitational field and the corresponding acceleration of the reference frame . This assumption extends the principle of relativity to the case of uniformly accelerated motion of the reference frame.
    In other words, he postulated that no experiment can locally distinguish between a uniform gravitational field and a uniform acceleration. Contents showTocToggle("show","hide")

    General Relativity http// General relativity is the theory of spacetime structure and gravitation
    END***************************************************************************General Relativity General relativity is the theory of spacetime structure and gravitation formulated by Einstein in 1915. Present day research in general relativity focuses mainly on three major areas: (1) mathematical aspects of the classical theory of general relativity, (2) implications of the theory for astrophysics and cosmology and (3) the quantum theory of gravitation. Research in all of these areas is actively pursued at Chicago. Although the classical theory of general relativity is a complete, well-formulated theory, the equations of the theory are sufficiently difficult to solve in general situations that we still do not know precisely what the theory predicts in a wide variety of circumstances. Thus, a great deal of effort has gone into proving general theorems about aspects such as the inevitability of gravitational collapse to singularities under a wide variety of initial conditions. In addition, because of the basic framework of the theory abandons the pre-assigned, rigid spacetime structure of special relativity, the definition of such an elementary property as the angular momentum of an isolated system becomes highly nontrivial and a number of other simple issues regarding properties of isolated systems have not been resolved. Research in these and other mathematical aspects of classical general relativity is actively pursued at Chicago, primarily by Robert Geroch. One of the most striking consequences of general relativity is its prediction of the existence of black holesthe "regions of no escape" formed by the complete gravitational collapse of a body. It has been proven that black holes are uniquely determined by their mass, angular momentum, and electric charge, and many remarkable predictionssuch as the possibility of the extraction of energy from a rotating black holehave been made. In addition, the equations describing the propagation of small electromagnetic and gravitational disturbances near a black hole possess many remarkable properties. Research in this area has been actively pursued at Chicago. Although general relativity is believed to be the correct classical description of gravitation, at present their exists no satisfactory quantum theory of gravitation, i.e. a theory which successfully incorporates the basic principles of both relativity and quantum theory. However, semiclassical calculation of quantum effects occurring in strong gravitational fields can be done. These quantum effects are expected to be of importance in the very early universe and near black holes. In the case of black holes, important progress was made in the mid-1970s by Hawking, who did a semiclassical calculation of the particle creation occurring in the strong gravitational field near a black hole, and obtained the remarkable result that particle are "emitted" by this process with an exactly thermal, black body spectrum. This tied together a relationship which had previously been discovered between the laws of black hole physics and those of ordinary thermodynamics and has provided a number of clues as to the nature of quantum gravity. Research on this and other issues related to quantum gravity is being actively pursued by Robert Wald.
