Physics 523, Problem Sets The TA for this class is Hans Bantilan ( [email protected] ). Problem sets should be dropped off in Hans' mail box by midnight of the due date. Late assignments will not be accepted. Solutions will be posted soon afterwards on blackboard. Included are tentative due dates, which could change as the term proceeds. All problems below are from the end-of-chapter exercises in An Introduction to General Relativity: Spacetime and Geometry by Sean M. Carroll, Addison Wesley, 2004. Assignment 1: Due Tuesday, September 27 1.2 1.4 1.6 for x i ( ) only 1.7 (a), (c), (e), (g) Assignment 2: Due Thursday, October 6 .. afterwards

However, the resulting ODEs are easy to solve numerically with any standard package such as mathematica, matlab, maple, etc. A plot of a typical solution would be fine as an answer.
