    Mass does not curve space-time in the sense that an "action" of some sort is being performed. Rather, the gravitation associated with energy ( any energy, not just mass ) is space-time curvature. Curvature and the presence of energy are one and same thing - the curvature is energy, and energy is curvature. You cannot separate them.

    The model which describes this relationship is called General Relativity, and it is mathematically sound and experimentally well confirmed.

    Exactly what it is you want to know ? Curvature is simply a geometric property of space-time.
