Main Document

General Relativity (GR) Package 

written by Wolfgang Christian, Mario Belloni, and Anne Cox

The General Relativity (GR) Package is a self-contained file for the teaching of general relativity.  The file contains ready-to-run OSP programs and a set of curricular materials.  You can choose from a variety of simulations ranging from comparisons between Newtonian mechanics and general relativity to orbits around and into black holes.

The General Realtivity package includes two supplemental documents (see below) that contain curricular worksheets in support of the package.

This application is an Open Source Physics curricular package.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the osp_gr.jar file will run the application if Java is installed.  Other resources are also available and can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics or OSP.
