In this lecture, I review the fundamental aspects of gravity, starting from the theory of Newton up to General Relativity, focusing on methods to build perturbative solutions.

The lecture is based on the monograph : Newtonian, post-Newtonian, Relativistic, by Eric Poisson and Clifford Will (PW) Cambridge University Press (2014)

4. Post-Newtonian theory – Near zone physics
Implementation, PN celestial mechanics, astrometry & timekeeping
PW, Chapters 8 – 10
