Einstein's Field Equations

Einstein’s field equations are the relativistic generalization of Newton’s law of gravitation. Einstein’s vision, based on the equality of inertial and gravitational masses, was that there is no gravitational force at all. What is said to be “particle motion under the influence of the gravitational force” in Newtonian theory, is according to the general theory of relativity, free motion along geodesic curves in a curved space-time.
