The successes of the theory of general relativity give more than enough reasons for physicists to learn and master differential geometry at least at the level of discussion in Ch. 7. It is most important to realize that, above all, general relativity is a physical theory that incorporates Newtonian gravity in the limit of low velocity images and makes specific predictions about relativistic effects. The theory has been confirmed by experiments over the huge range of scales from 1 mm to cosmological distances. Unfortunately, the focus of this book allows ...
