Einstein’s Gravity

  • Heinrich Saller
Part of the Fundamental Theories of Physics book series (FTPH, volume 163)


In this chapter, Einstein’s gravity with the identification of the curvature of a Riemannian manifold as a geometrical concept and interaction as a physical one is shortly exemplified by Schwarzschild–Kruskal spacetime and by some properties of Friedmann spacetimes with Robertson–Walker metrics. As a warm-up, the group-oriented operational language will be used in those important and basic examples for classical macroscopic gravity.
