Learning aims & outcomes
The aim of this optional course is to provide a first treatise on general relativity and cosmology, as a prerequisite for those students who would like to continue further studies in mathematical or theoretical particle physics.
The structure of the course is aimed at the mathematically advanced students, and skills in mathematics are essential, given that a substantial part of the course deals with tensors and other advanced mathematical concepts, such as elements of differential geometry. Some techniques used in this course, such as Lagrange equations, are also taught in greater detail in other third year courses, such as mathematical methods.
