Abstract [en]

This project contains an exposition of the basics of General Relativity up to the study of Gravitational Waves. The goal is to apply this theory to understand binary systems, how they generate gravitational waves and the energy they lose in doing so. Gravitational waves have been a topic of interest in relativity ever since their theoretical prediction in 1916. Now the interest in the subject has been renewed since LIGO's announcement of the first detection of gravitational waves, proving once again the power of General Relativity. This topic is very promising because of its implications in the future of astronomy and cosmology as a new method to obtain information about our universe.
