Einstein's General Theory of Relativity (Fall 2008, Stanford Univ.).

Instructor: Professor Leonard Susskind. General relativity, or the general theory of relativity, is the geometric theory of gravitation published by Albert Einstein in 1916 and the current description of gravitation in modern physics. General relativity generalises special relativity and Newton's law of universal gravitation, providing a unified description of gravity as a geometric property of space and time, or spacetime. In particular, the curvature of spacetime is directly related to the energy and momentum of whatever matter and radiation are present. (from theoreticalminimum.com)
