The Geometry of Relativity

Tevian Dray*, Oregon State University (Faculty)
Talk Abstract: 
The geometry of special relativity can be neatly described using hyperbolic trigonometry. The geometry of general relativity can be similarly described using differentials and differential forms. This talk presents an excursion through both special and general relativity, emphasizing geometric structure and using (mostly) elementary concepts from trigonometry, linear algebra, and vector calculus. You may never view those topics the same way again...
