Syllabus

Textbook

Misner, Thorne, and Wheeler. Gravitation. Worth, 1972. ISBN: 0716703440.


Prerequisites

Differential Equations (18.03), Linear Algebra (18.06), and Electromagnetism II (8.07).


Grading

The grade will be based on 12 problem sets. There will be no final exam or other assignments.


Homework Policy

You may discuss homework problems with others but must write up your own solutions. This is a graduate course and I assume that you wish to learn the material; the problem sets provide a good way to achieve this goal. Unless prior arrangements are made with Prof. Bertschinger, no credit will be given for problem sets handed in after solutions are posted online (generally on or shortly after the due date).
