Book description

The 2015 centenary of the publication of Einstein's general theory of relativity, and the first detection of gravitational waves have focused renewed attention on the question of whether Einstein was right. This review of experimental gravity provides a detailed survey of the intensive testing of Einstein's theory of gravity, including tests in the emerging strong-field dynamical regime. It discusses the theoretical frameworks needed to analyze gravitational theories and interpret experiments. Completely revised and updated, this new edition features coverage of new alternative theories of gravity, a unified treatment of gravitational radiation, and the implications of the latest binary pulsar observations. It spans the earliest tests involving the Solar System to the latest tests using gravitational waves detected from merging black holes and neutron stars. It is a comprehensive reference for researchers and graduate students working in general relativity, cosmology, particle physics and astrophysics.

Reviews

'Throughout, the text is well written and the presentation is easy to follow … The content is presented in full formal rigour, as appropriate for such a book. The text is in the style of a monograph, referenced to scientific publications throughout and supported by a number of black-and-white figures. It can be recommended to readers on the level of advanced undergraduates and above, either to accompany a course in gravitational physics, or for other studies of gravitation in the frame of general relativity with a special focus on possible and actually performed tests, their experimental implementation, and their implications for theory.'
