This is a preparatory course on gravitational-wave theory. We shall study geometric and field-theoretical approach to GWs followed by generation of GWs in linearized theory and applications. The course will continue in the next semester. Our objective is to study the book “Gravitational Waves” by Michele Maggiore so as to prepare for tackling research problems in the field.
Prerequisite: Riemannian Geometry
