About the Authors
  • Gravitational wave detectors will revolutionize gravitational-wave astronomy by enabling researchers to see the Universe through fine antennas, providing a clearer, more detailed image of what lies in the Universe. This book reviews all aspects of this exciting astronomical project. This timely volume provides an invaluable introduction for graduate students and will be the standard reference for researchers in astronomy and physics. An accompanying free CD-ROM (compatible with both Macintosh and PC hardware) provides numerical simulations of black holes and other exotic objects emitting gravitational radiation, together with the book in a hypertext format.

    • Includes a free CD-ROM with computer simulations and the book text in a hypertext format
    • Specially written chapters by a team of distinguished world experts
    • Will become the standard reference on gravitational radiation
