Beschreibung

Proceedings of the 81 WE-Heraeus-Seminar Held at the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, Germany, 2-6 September 1991

17 readable articles give a thorough and self-contained
overview of recent developments in relativistic gravity
research. The subjects covered are: gravitational lensing,
the general relativistic n-body problem, observable effects
in the solar system, gravitational waves and their
interferometric detection, very-long-baseline
interferometry, international atomic time, lunar laser-
ranging measurements, measurement ofthe gravitomagnetic
field of the Earth, fermion and boson stars and black holes
with hair, rapidly rotating neutron stars, matter wave
interferometry, and the laboratory test of Newton's law of
gravity.Any scientist interested in experimentally or
observatio- nally oriented relativistic gravity will read
the book with profit. In addition, it is perfectly suited as
a complementary text for courses on general relativity and
relativistic astrophysics.

Autorentext
Relativistic effects become increasingly important in observational astrophysics. This book covers this topic in the form of a collection of readable articles. The reader will find papers on gravitational lensing, the relativistic n-body problem, gravitational waves, interferometry and lunar laser-ranging measurements etc.
