Gravity   Theory

 Two main gravity theories are: 

General Relativity (A.Einstein, 1915)

Field Gravity (R.Feynman, 1961)

 The best text-book on General Relativity (GR) is L.D. Landau & E.M. Lifshitz, The classical theory of filds , Pergamon Press, N.Y. (1971).

The best book on Field Gravity (FG) is R.P. Feynman, F.B.Morinigo, W.G. Wagner, Feynman Lectures on Gravitation, Ed. by Brien Hatfield with Foreword by John Preskill and Kip Thorn, Perseus Books, USA (1995).
