Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to state and discuss Einstein's equations, to derive Schwartzschild's solution and distinguish differences in the effective potentials for photons and massive particles with respect to Newtonian gravity,to categorise and be able to discuss general relativity (GR)“, to know modern tests of GR, to discuss quantum mechanics and gravitation in the case of neutron physics, to corroborate gravitational waves from the experimental and theoretical point of view, to know and discriminate among cosmological models as well as Friedmann's solution, to know modern possible solutions for dark matter and dark energy (chameleon, symmetron, dilaton).

Subject of course

I General Relativity, testing Einstein

Gravitation: in non-relativistic and relativistic physics, equivalence principle and its consequences, spacetime structure and tensor analysis (manifold without affine connection, manifold with affine connection, manifold with metric affinity), Einstein equations, Schwarzschild metric, modern tests of gravity (with quantum interferometry, satellite experiments, spin-mass coupling, equivalence principle and Einsteins equations);

Cosmology: part I: homogenous and isotropic Universe, expanding Universe, inflation and accelerating Universe;

Part II: newer developments after the cosmological standard model (screening mechanisms, Chameleons, Galileons,...)

Teaching methods

Lecture where the notes are communicated over and examples are illustrated on the blackboard.
