## Relativity Theory I (2019-20) -- PHY483F/1483F

### Recommended textbook

The modern introductory GR textbook I currently like the most is:-

- M.P. Hobson, G. Efstathiou, and A.N. Lasenby,
General Relativity: An Introduction for Physicists

(Cambridge, 2006).

I strongly recommend that you obtain a copy, to give you a different but related perspective to the lecture notes. I will refer to this book fairly often in lecture notes as HEL

.
