This book is a compilation of the lectures for a one-semester course on gravitation at the University of Rochester.
Starting from a simple description of geometry, the topics are systematically developed to the big bang theory with a simple derivation of the cosmic background temperature.
Several informative examples are worked out in detail as well.
