### Beschreibung

Gravitational waves (GWs) play a central role in astrophysics, cosmology, and theoretical physics. This book covers topics such as the basics of GWs, various advanced topics, GW detectors, astrophysics of GW sources, numerical applications, and several theoretical developments.### Inhaltsverzeichnis

Astrophysics of gravitational wave sources. Waves and energy. Mass- and current-quadrupole radiation. Source calculations. Part 2 Gravitational wave detectors (G Pizzella et al): Resonant detectors for gravitational waves and their bandwidth. The Earth based large interferometer Virgo and the low frequency facility. Detection of scalar gravitational waves. Part 3 The stachastic gravitational wave background (D Babusci, et al): Generalities of stachastic GW background. Sources of SGWB. Part 4 Theoretical developments (H Nicolai et al): Infinite dimensional symmetries in gravity. Gyroscopes and gravitational waves. Elementary introduction to pre-big bang cosmology and to the relic graviton background. Post-Newtonian computation of binary inspiral waveforms. Part 5 Numerical relativity.### Pressestimmen
