Relativity bookmarks  Rob Salgado's bookmarks Relativity on the World Wide Web  Chris Hillman's bookmarks The Casimir Effect in RelativityTools of Tensor CalculusHandbook of Space Astronomy and Astrophysics  Relativity  A collection of equations important to both special relativity and general relativity. An introduction to the Yilmaz Theory of Gravity  Yilmaz discovered an alternative theory of gravitation which surmounts some of the defects of general relativity. The solutions of the field equations contain neither spacetime singularities, or, equivalently, there are no black holes. Ricci  A Mathematica package for doing tensor calculations in differential geometry and general relativity. NOVA Online/Einstein Revealed  Profile of Albert Einstein, with additional teaching resources, Shockwave demonstrations, and animations of relativity concepts. Gravitational Lensing  A popular site with interactive demonstrations of gravitational lensing. The background material is at a graduate level General Relativity Simulation Contest  The purpose of this Contest is to prove General Relativity using a (simple) algorithm. The Twistor Theory Website  Twistor theory offers a new approach, starting with conformallyinvariant concepts, to the synthesis of quantum theory and relativity. Shapiro Radar Bounce Test  A two part overview of the Shapiro radar bounce test of general relativity. (The two parts consist of a section for normal people, and one for nerds) Cosmic Topology  General relativity does not allow one to specify the topology of space, leaving the possibility that space is multi rather than simply connected. This paper reviews the mathematical properties of multiconnected spaces, and the different tools to classify them and to analyse their properties. Southampton GR Explorer  An introduction to Einstein's theory of General Relativity and related topics. These pages include informative text, pictures and movies. Accelerated Observers in Special Relativity  Discusses the age of distant objects for an observer that is accelerating. An Essay on General Relativity  This site contains a comprehensive introduction to the basic ideas and tests of general relativity Solving Einstein's Equations in Three Dimensions  This is a Mathematica notebook showing how to plot light cones in two plus one spacetime dimensions with a point mass. Interactive Experiments in Gravity  Try an experiment that illustrates the gravitational attraction between two objects or use a Java applet to understand how orbits work in strongly curved spacetime. Gravity Probe B  Gravity Probe B is the relativity gyroscope experiment being developed by NASA and Stanford University to test two extraordinary, unverified predictions of Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity. Physics Bookshelf  Relativity  A collection of articles about relativity Gravity of Gravity  An experiment at the University of Washington seeks to determine whether the gravitational binding energy of an object generates gravity of its own. Gravitational Waves: An Introduction  This paper presents an elementary introduction to the theory of gravitational waves. This article is meant for students who have had an exposure to general relativity, but results from general relativity have been derived in the appendices. Are There Pictorial Examples of Covariant and Contravariant Vectors  We present pictorial means of distinguishing contravariant vectors (or simply vectors) from covariant vectors (or linear forms). Starlight and Mercury's orbit  open.org/pitmandu For the junior student; an heuristic development of the equations explaining the precession of the orbit of Mercury and the deflection of light in a gravitational field without using differential geometry. Includes a review of the development of E=mc^2. Cosmic Strings  A review of the physics which predicts the properties of cosmic strings and topological defects. Special and General Relativity + Faster than light Travelling  A thorough explanation of special and general relativity, and a discussion about traveling faster than light, with StarTrek in mind.
