The notebook "Pseudo-Riemannian Geometry and Tensor-Anaslysis" can be used as an interactive textbook introducing into this part of differential geometry. It continues the item "An Interactive Textbook on Euclidean Differential Geometry", MathSource 9115, but it may be used indepedently of the mentioned textbook as a starting point for applications of Mathematica in Riemannian Geometry or Relativity Theory. The file RGv2.pdf gives a survey over the contents of the notebook, and RG.zip contains the notebook and the packages with the newly introduced Mathematica functions.
