Book description

This is a revised edition of a classic and highly regarded book, first published in 1981, describing the status of theory and experiment in general relativity. The book provides all the necessary theoretical background, and covers all the important experimental tests. A new chapter has been added to cover recent important experimental tests, and the bibliography has been brought right up to date.Reviews of the previous edition:' … consolidates much of the literature on experimental gravity and should be invaluable to researchers in gravitation …' Science ' … a concise and meaty book … and a most useful reference work … researchers and serious students of gravitation should be pleased with it …' Nature

Reviews

‘ … a concise and meaty book … and a most useful reference work … researchers and serious students of gravitation should be pleased with it …’

Source: Science

‘I can definitely recommend it as an extensive source of valuable information to anyone who wishes to become familiar with the ‘tools of the trade’ in this field … To researchers contemplating new gravitational experiments, the book will provide useful guidance in considering the implications of their measurements on the verification of general relativity and competing theories.’
