Weak gravitational fields

Date: 
Thursday, June 30, 2016
Room: 
204
Speaker: 
Marko Toros (PhD student, University of Trieste)
Abstract: 
We will discuss some aspects of the General theory of Relativity (GR) for the description of weak gravitational fields. In particular, we will look at the Landau-Lifshitz (LL) formulation of GR and at the post-Newtonian (pN) theory.
