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 1,729 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 )

53 editions published between 1981 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 905 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 2015 centenary of the publication of Einstein's general theory of relativity, and the first detection of gravitational waves have focused renewed attention on the question of whether Einstein was right. This review of experimental gravity provides a detailed survey of the intensive testing of Einstein's theory of gravity, including tests in the emerging strong-field dynamical regime. It discusses the theoretical frameworks needed to analyze gravitational theories and interpret experiments. Completely revised and updated, this new edition features coverage of new alternative theories of gravity, a unified treatment of gravitational radiation, and the implications of the latest binary pulsar observations. It spans the earliest tests involving the Solar System to the latest tests using gravitational waves detected from merging black holes and neutron stars. It is a comprehensive reference for researchers and graduate students working in general relativity, cosmology, particle physics and astrophysics
Gravity : Newtonian, post-Newtonian, relativistic by Eric Poisson( Book )

14 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 216 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 95 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 79 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

Etude d'effets relativistes en champ gravitationnel fort : simulations d'observations du centre galactique par l'instrument GRAVITY by Frédéric Vincent( Book )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cette thèse s'intéresse à simuler des effets de relativité générale en champ gravitationnel fort, aux abords immédiats du trou noir central de la Galaxie, Sagittarius*, afin de déterminer les données observables qu'un observateur distant serait susceptible d'obtenir. Je me suis d'abord intéressé aux performances astrométriques de l'instrument de deuxième génération du Very Large Telescope Interferometer, GRAVITY. Il s'est agi de déterminer avec quelle précision cet instrument sera capable de suivre des phénomènes dynamiques évoluant à proximité immédiate du trou noir central. J'ai ensuite été amené à développer un code de calcul de trajectoires de particules en relativité générale, GYOTO, qui permet de calculer les orbites de particules à proximité du trou noir central, ainsi que la propagation du rayonnement, comprenant les effets de transfert radiatif, jusqu'à un observateur distant. Au-delà de permettre l'intégration des trajectoires de particules aux abords d'un trou noir, GYOTO est également capable de calculer l'évolution d'une particule dans une métrique non analytique, exprimée numériquement dans le formalisme 3+1 de la relativité générale. J'ai pu alors m'intéresser à étudier la structure d'accrétion entourant le trou noir central, dans l'hypothèse où celle-ci serait un tore ionisé. Je me suis intéressé à calculer l'image de la silhouette de cette structure d'accrétion, ainsi que le spectre émis par ce tore, et j'ai pu montrer qu'une telle structure pouvait rendre compte de l'émission synchroton observée aux abords de Sagittarius A*. J'ai alors étudié un phénomène permettant de sonder le voisinage le plus immédiat du trou noir central : les sursauts de rayonnement qui affectent Sagittarius A* et qui pourraient être dus à de la matière en orbite très serrée autour de l'objet compact central. En réalisant des simulations d'observations par GRAVITY de ce phénomène, j'ai pu montrer que cet instrument permettra d'apporter des contraintes sur l'inclinaison du trou noir central

[Was Einstein right? : relativity on the firing line by Clifford M Will( Visual )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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."
