Gravitational waves

Most popular at the top

  • The Detection of Gravitational Wavesby David G. Blair

    Cambridge University Press 1991; US$ 48.00

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

  • Omnidirectional Gravitational Radiation Observatoryby W. F. Velloso; O. D. Aguiar

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1997; US$ 28.00 US$ 25.48

    Gravitational wave detection is certainly one of the most challenging goals for today's physics. For three decades detectors have improved in sensitivity in order to confirm the existence of these waves, which are predicted by general relativity and other theories of gravitation. Besides testing these theories themselves the detection of gravitational... more...

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

    CRC Press 2001; US$ 57.95

    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...

  • Gravity's Shadowby Harry Collins

    University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 58.00

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

    Wiley 2012; US$ 192.00 US$ 172.80

    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...

  • Newton's Gravityby Douglas W. MacDougal

    Springer New York 2012; US$ 61.96

    Adroitly conveying the power of simple mathematics to reveal Nature’s fundamental truths, this manual of Newtonian mechanics focuses on our developing knowledge of orbital motion, with real-life problems and case studies that cross disciplinary boundaries. more...

  • 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, the previous... more...

  • Exploring the Early Universe with Gravitational Wavesby Laura Bianca Bethke

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 97.04

    This work investigates gravitational wave production in the early universe and identifies potentially observable features, thereby paving the way for future gravitational wave experiments. It focuses on gravitational wave production in two scenarios: inflation in a model inspired by loop quantum gravity, and preheating at the end of inflation. In the... more...

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

    Cambridge University Press 2005; US$ 46.00

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