Dynamics of Gravitating Particles and Matter Fields  

Particles > s.a. canonical general relativity; dynamics of gravitating bodies; matter phenomenology; solutions of general relativity with matter.
* Idea: Study of the ways in which matter fields can be coupled to gravity, and their consequences.
* Note: Unless otherwise specified, in this page gravitational theory is described by 4D general relativity.
