Are there any experiment prove the general theory of relativity?
What is the mathematics need to know?
Give me some advice!
Thanks!

Several results of Gen. Relativity are proved through some astronomical observations. More can be examined once we have appropriate object or phenomenon.

You obviously have to be proficent with Tensor calculus and differential geometry to appreciate gen. relativity.

One famous example: Gravity bends light - observed during total eclipse of 1919.

Gravitational time dilation - precision clocks operated at different altitudes (different gravity) run at slightly different rates.

Elliptical orbits are explained by classical mechanics. The unexpected precession of orbits is explained by general relativity.

Google finds vast quantities of additional info, of course.
