An asymptotically flat spacetime is a Lorentzian manifold in which, roughly speaking, the curvature vanishes at large distances from some region, so that at large distances, the geometry becomes indistinguishable from that of Minkowski spacetime.. While this notion makes sense for any Lorentzian manifold, it is most often applied to a spacetime standing as a solution to the . SAO/NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS) Title: Book Review: Flat and curved space-times. - 2nd ed. / Oxford University Press, Authors: Mestel, L. Journal: The.

The invariant interval of flat space-time is generalised to that of curved space-times, and leads to an understanding of the basic properties of simple cosmological models and of the collapse of a star to form a black hole.

General relativity (GR), also known as the general theory of relativity (GTR), is the geometric theory of gravitation published by Albert Einstein in and the current description of gravitation in modern l relativity generalizes special relativity and refines Newton's law of universal gravitation, providing a unified description of gravity as a geometric property of space .
