### General Relativity and Cosmology

A pdf document set out in note form which discusses topics such as the cosmological principle.

### Immovable Spacetime

This site explains in mathematical detail the theories behind space time and relativity.

### Studying the stars, testing relativity: Sir Arthur Eddington

A good page giving details of this astrophysicist.

### Falling: How To Meet Einstein In An Elevator

A great insight into general relativity using the changing accelerations of lifts.

### A More Practical Arrangement

Looks at the use of inertial coordinates in special relativity, with light propagating isotropically and c independent of the source's motion.

### Spacetime Wrinkles

A series of articles about relativity specifically about recent research. Includes movies (QuickTime) and sound.

### Anomalous Precessions

The precession of the orbits of inner planets, especially Mercury, cannot be accurately described by Newtonian theory but are in close agreement with general relativity.

### An Exact Solution

In general relativity the speed of light is a tensor whose value depends on the coordinate system, location and direction of travel.

### Lecture notes on General Relativity by Sean M. Carroll

Course given at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and issued Spring 1996. Links to other relevant sites.

### Deriving Inter Kinematic Relations for Accel-ID

A brief but detailed article looking at special relativity by using 'proper acceleration' to eliminate the need to start with Lorentz Transformations.
