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)

6. Post-Newtonian theory – Far zone physics
Radiative losses and radiation reaction
