Was Einstein right? : putting general relativity to the test by Clifford M Will( Book )

35 editions published between 1986 and 1995 in English and held by 1,787 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 )

42 editions published between 1981 and 2011 in English and Russian and held by 826 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Gravity : Newtonian, post-Newtonian, relativistic by Eric Poisson( Book )

12 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 154 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"--
Les enfants d'Einstein : la relativite generale a l'epreuve de l'observation by Clifford M Will( Book )

4 editions published in 1988 in French and held by 94 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
Und Einstein hatte doch recht by Clifford M Will( Book )

3 editions published in 1989 in German and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Keine wissenschaftliche Theorie ist auf solche Faszination auch außerhalb der Wissenschaft gestoßen wie die Allgemeine Relativitätstheorie von Albert Einstein, und keine wurde so nachdrücklich mit den Mitteln der modernen Physik überprüft. Wie hat sie diesen Test mit Raumsonden, Radioastronomie, Atomuhren und Supercomputern standgehalten? Hatte Einstein recht? Mit der Autorität des Fachmanns und dem Flair des unvoreingenommenen Erzählers schildert Clifford Will die Menschen, Ideen und Maschinen hinter den Tests der allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie. Ohne Formeln und Fachjargon wird der leser mit Einsteins Gedanken vertraut und erfährt von der Bestätigung seiner Vorhersagen, angefangen bei der Lichtablenkung im Schwerefeld der Sonne 1919 bis zu den ausgefeilten Kreiselexperimenten auf dem Space Shuttle. Die Allgemeine Relativitätstheorie hat nich nur alle diese Tests bestanden, sie hat darüber hinaus wesentlich beigetragen zu unserem Verständnis von Phänomenen wie Pulsaren, Quasaren, Schwarzen Löchern und Gravitationslinsen. Dieses Buch erzählt lebendig und spannend die Geschichte einer der größten geistigen Leistungen unserer Zeit

2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Report evaluates and determines adequacy of corrections for relativistic effects in present Air Force programs to perform their mission, e.g., the global positioning system (GPS). Report determines adequacy of present methods for meeting Air Force mission needs and explains future uses and needs for time transfer, including use of time transfer to test the postulates of relativity theory. Keywords include: global positioning system, NAVSTAR, relativistic effects, and time transfer
