This web page is an overview of the geometrical foundations of general relativity. It gives a conceptual explanation of the topics of curvature, manifolds, and coordinates on curved spaces. It is a portion of a larger compilation of information on the mathematical foundations of modern physics, including special relativity, general relativity, black holes, and quantum mechanics.

Known world-wide as "MTW". A classic, graduate level textbook on general relativity. Includes both "math-first" and "physics-first" elements. This text covers material for a graduate level course on gravitation physics and general relativity. Topics include flat spacetime, tools of modern geometry, Einstein's geometric framework for physics, applications such as pulsars and neutron stars, cosmology, gravitational collapse, and gravitational waves. It also includes information on experimental tests of General Relativity, superspace, and quantum geometrodynamics.
