Was Einstein right? : putting general relativity to the test by Clifford M Will( Book )
18 editions published between 1986 and 1995 in English and held by 1,757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Looks at how scientists have tested Einstein's theory during the past seventy years, and demonstrates how this theory is crucial to understanding such features of the universe as pulsars, quasars, and black holes
Theory and experiment in gravitational physics by Clifford M Will( Book )
32 editions published between 1981 and 2000 in English and held by 809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Gravity : Newtonian, post-Newtonian, relativistic by Eric Poisson( Book )
3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This textbook explores approximate solutions to general relativity and their consequences. It offers a unique presentation of Einstein's theory by developing powerful methods that can be applied to astrophysical systems. Beginning with a uniquely thorough treatment of Newtonian gravity, the book develops post-Newtonian and post-Minkowskian approximation methods to obtain weak-field solutions to the Einstein field equations. The book explores the motion of self-gravitating bodies, the physics of gravitational waves, and the impact of radiative losses on gravitating systems. It concludes with a brief overview of alternative theories of gravity. Ideal for graduate courses on general relativity and relativistic astrophysics, the book examines real-life applications, such as planetary motion around the Sun, the timing of binary pulsars, and gravitational waves emitted by binary black holes. Text boxes explore related topics and provide historical context, and over 100 exercises present challenging tests of the material covered in the main text"--

2 editions published in 1988 in French and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sans recourir au formalisme mathématique, l'auteur, professeur de physique à Washington University, explique "comment la théorie de la relativité générale a passé avec succès tous les tests expérimentaux qui lui ont été appliqués à ce jour". Il s'intéresse au côté humain de l'entreprise, en mettant en évidence les obstacles qui se dressent sur la route des chercheurs, leurs déceptions, leurs rivalités, etc. Bref exposé des principales idées qui fondent la relativité restreinte en annexe

Was Einstein right? Does relativity play an important role in our daily lives? Learn how the most celebrated scientific theory of the 20th century has held up after 100 years of exacting scrutiny with planetary probes, radio telescopes, atomic clocks, nearly 2,000 measurements of the bending of light, and a space experiment in 2004 to test whether spacetime "does the twist."
