Abstract:

Discutiremos la geometría del espacio-tiempo según la relatividad espacial. Luego algunos aspectos de la relatividad general y la relación entre la gravedad y la geometría del espacio tiempo. Discutiremos las recientes observaciones de ondas gravitatorias. Finalmente hablaremos sobre los agujeros negros.
