I am following Sean Carroll's text on General Relativity for this course for the most part, although I do take a few digressions and I will not cover some of the more technical Chapters in Carrol. Our focus is mostly on the essential core of the the theory and how to set-up the mathematics for such. Also, if time permits I hope to discuss other formalisms with which we can frame General Relativity.

- Lecture 1 video and notes on: course overview
- Lecture 2 video and notes on: course Minkowski Space a.k.a. spacetime
- Lecture 3 video and notes on: index-based calculation
- Lecture 4 video and notes on: Lorentz Transformations
- Lecture 5 video and notes on: Euclidean Structures for formal Newtonian Mechanics and the generalization to Special Relativity
- Lecture 6 video and notes on: Tensors
- Lecture 7 video and notes on: 4-Vectors and Special Relativity
- Lecture 8 video and notes on: Maxwell's Equations and Stress Energy Tensors
- Lecture 9 video and notes on: Variational Calculus and Lagrangian Mechanics
- Lecture 10 video and notes on: Classical Field Theory (a brief introduction with application to Electromagnetics, I also digress on Electromagnetism in terms of differential forms)

- note to self, delete this later: final exam solution.
