The Fall 2012 quarter of the Modern Physics series concentrates on Einstein's theory of gravity and geometry: the General Theory of Relativity. Beginning with the basic ideas of Riemannian and curved space, and Minkowski's "space-time," we learn about Einstein's discovery of how gravity is really the curvature of space-time. We also cover the theory of black holes and their strangely paradoxical properties. The final weeks of the course develop the essential ideas of Big Bang cosmology.

Originally presented by the Stanford Continuing Studies Program.
