In this Chapter we ‘derive’ the Einstein equations, study their weak field approximation, and briefly discuss gravitational waves and their generation. We finish the Chapter by remarks on the higher dimensional gravity, spacetimes with large extra dimensions, and their properties.

Keywords:   Einstein‐Hilbert action, linearized gravity, Newtonian limit, gravitational waves, higher dimensions
