Gravitational waves

  • Gravity's Ghost and Big Dogby Harry Collins

    University of Chicago Press 2014; US$ 45.00

    Gravity’s Ghost and Big Dog brings to life science’s efforts to detect cosmic gravitational waves. These ripples in space-time are predicted by general relativity, and their discovery will not only demonstrate the truth of Einstein’s theories but also transform astronomy. Although no gravitational wave has ever been directly detected,... more...

  • Gravitational Wave Detection and Data Analysis for Pulsar Timing Arraysby Rutger van Haasteren

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    Pulsar timing is a promising method for detecting gravitational waves in the nano-Hertz band.In his prize winning Ph.D. thesis Rutger van Haasteren deals with how one takes thousands of seemingly random timing residuals which are measured by pulsar observers, and extracts information about the presence and character of the gravitational waves in the... more...

  • Newton's Gravityby Douglas W. MacDougal

    Springer 2012; US$ 89.95

    “Newton’s Gravity” conveys the power of simple mathematics to tell the fundamental truth about nature. Many people, for example, know the tides are caused by the pull of the Moon and to a lesser extent the Sun. But very few can explain exactly how and why that happens. Fewer still can calculate the  actual pulls of the Moon and... more...

  • Gravitational-Wave Physics and Astronomyby Jolien D. E. Creighton; Warren G. Anderson

    Wiley 2012; US$ 180.00

    This most up-to-date, one-stop reference combines coverage of both theory and observational techniques, with introductory sections to bring all readers up to the same level. Written by outstanding researchers directly involved with the scientific program of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO), the book begins with a brief... more...

  • Gravity's Ghostby Harry Collins

    University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 30.00

    In theory, at least, gravitational waves do exist. We are constantly bathed in gravitational radiation, which is generated when stars explode or collide and a portion of their mass becomes energy that ripples out like a disturbance on the surface of a serene pond. But unfortunately no gravitational wave has ever been directly detected even though... more...

  • Gravity's Shadowby Harry Collins

    University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 40.00

    According to the theory of relativity, we are constantly bathed in gravitational radiation. When stars explode or collide, a portion of their mass becomes energy that disturbs the very fabric of the space-time continuum like ripples in a pond. But proving the existence of these waves has been difficult; the cosmic shudders are so weak that only the... more...

  • Gravitational Radiation, Luminous Black Holes and Gamma-Ray Burst Supernovaeby Maurice H. P. M. van Putten

    Cambridge University Press 2005; US$ 40.00

    A comprehensive overview for graduates of the theories of this contemporary development in physics. more...

  • Gravitational Wavesby I. Ciufolini; V. Gorini; U. Moschella; P Fre

    Taylor and Francis 2001; US$ 210.00

    Gravitational waves (GWs) are a hot topic and promise to play a central role in astrophysics, cosmology, and theoretical physics. Technological developments have led us to the brink of their direct observation, which could become a reality in the coming years. The direct observation of GWs will open an entirely new field: GW astronomy. This is expected... more...

  • The Detection of Gravitational Wavesby David G. Blair

    Cambridge University Press 1991; US$ 99.00

    In this 1991 text leading scientists in the field provide an art account of the physics and technology of gravitational wave detection. more...
