    If you're anything like me, last week's news from the international science community that gravitational waves, a phenomenon predicted by Einstein years ago, had actually been discovered left. The two-volume book Gravitational Waves provides a comprehensive and detailed account of the physics of gravitational waves. While Volume 1 is devoted to the theory and experiments, Volume 2 discusses what can be learned from gravitational waves in astrophysics and in cosmology, by systematizing a large body of theoretical developments that have taken place over the last decades.

This book covers two related stories, each fascinating in its own right. It is first of all the definitive account of the controversy surrounding Joe Weber's claimed detection of gravitational waves, told by someone who has met and interviewed all of the leading participants since the origins of the controversy in Cited by: This book is an excellent guide to the field of Gravitational Waves.

The book does assume some background knowledge of general relativity, as do most texts on the subject. Overall the topics flow well together and are in a logical by: This book continues the work on gravitational waves that Harry Collins began with Gravity’s Ghost and Gravity’s Shadow.

It is written at a very accessible level and serves as an insider account of the discovery of gravitational waves, from the very first email to the first published paper and the response of the public.

But gravitational waves ripples in the fabric of space and time are unrelenting, passing through barriers that stop light dead.

At the two 4-kilometre long LIGO observatories in the US, scientists developed incredibly sensitive detectors, capable Until then, investigation of the universe had depended on electromagnetic radiation: visible light /5.

The aim of this book is to become a major reference text for gravitational-wave physics, covering in detail both the experimental and the theoretical aspects. It is the only existing book on gravitational waves to date, and it will likely remain unique for its broadness and scope.

It brings the reader to the forefront of present-day research, both theoretical and experimental, assuming no. The detection of gravitational waves has ushered in a new era of gravitational wave astronomy and added a new medium to multi-messenger astronomy.

This book examines the theoretical foundation of gravitational waves and the state of the art of gravitational wave detection including interferometric detectors and pulsar timing arrays. Well, gravitational waves were detected by the advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observtory, or LIGO for short.

The study was based on the observation of difference in time taken by light to travel in the event of a space time distortion. This book is accessible to non-specialist readers from a general audience and is also an excellent introduction to the topic for undergraduates in physics.

Features: Provides an introduction to the historic discovery of gravitational waves; Explains the inner workings of the detectors and the search to find the waves hidden in the data.

A new book chronicles the year odyssey that culminated in the first direct detection of gravitational waves. The book sets aside the science to focus on.

Gravity’s Shadow chronicles the forty-year effort to detect gravitational waves, while exploring the meaning of scientific knowledge and the nature of expertise. Gravitational wave detection involves recording the collisions, explosions, and trembling of stars and black holes by evaluating the smallest changes ever measured.

These pages provide short and easy to understand introductions to a number of topics related to gravitational waves and the instruments used to detect them. This GW E-Book is available in the following languages: English, Español, Català, 简体中文, Deutsch and Italiano.

Gravitational Waves by Brian Clegg,available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide/5(88). The announcement of the detection of Gravitational Waves Two black holes collided and merged billion years ago generating gravitational waves that were detected on earth in September "It is by far the most powerful explosion humans have ever detected except for the big bang" Einstein predictions are proven to be correct.

Marc Favata's gravitational wave resources page. Marc is a theoretical astrophysicist at Caltech and JPL. He studies gravitational waves produced by black holes, neutron stars, and white dwarfs.

This page provides a variety of useful links related to gravitational-wave science. In thetrilogy by Cixin Liu, Remembrance of Earth's Past, in the first book, Three Body Problem, the main character of the first half of the.

Gravitational Waves - CRC Press Book 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. Gravitational waves travel at the speed of light, where c = λf.

Gravitational waves come in two polarization states (called + [plus]and× [cross]) The Metric and the Wave Equation • There is a long chain of reasoning that leads to the notion of gravitational waves. ItFile Size: KB. The history of this event, which is epochal for physics, is reconstructed in this book, along with a walk-through of the main principles of how the detectors operate and a discussion of how the search for gravitational waves is conducted.

The book concludes with an update of the latest detections and developments to date and a brief look into Author: Hartmut Grote. It is the only existing book on gravitational waves to date, and it will likely remain unique for its broadness and scope.

It brings the reader to the forefront of present-day research, both theoretical and experimental, assuming no previous knowledge of gravitational-wave physics. Part I of Volume 1 is devoted to the theory of gravitational waves.5/5(8). Have Gravitational Waves finally been detected by LIGO.

Physicists Umberto Cannella and Daniel Whiteson explain what they are and why they'll cause a. The two-volume book Gravitational Waves provides a comprehensive and detailed account of the physics of gravitational waves.

While Volume 1 is devoted to the theory and experiments, Volume 2 discusses what can be learned from gravitational waves in astrophysics and in cosmology, by systematizing a large body of theoretical developments that.

A gravitational wave is an invisible (yet incredibly fast) ripple in space. We’ve known about gravitational waves for a long time. More than years ago, a great scientist named Albert Einstein came up with many ideas about gravity and space. Albert Einstein, official Nobel Prize in Physics photograph.The first direct observation of gravitational waves was made on 14 September and was announced by the LIGO and Virgo collaborations on 11 February Previously, gravitational waves had only been inferred indirectly, via their effect on the timing of pulsars in binary star systems.

The waveform, detected by both LIGO observatories, matched the predictions of general relativity for a Distance: +, − Mpc.
