Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a discussion of spherically symmetric spacetimes, the Schwarzschild metric, and other coordinates. It then covers Schwarzschild spacetime, the motion of the planets and perihelion precession, stability of circular orbits, deflection of light rays, red shift and time delay, spherically symmetric interior solutions, the Schwarzschild black hole, spherically symmetric gravitational collapse, the Reissner–Nordström solution, and Schwarzschild spacetime in dimension n + 1.

Keywords:   spacetime, Szhawzchild, motion of planets, perihelion precession, black hole, gravitational collapse, Reissner–Nordström solution
