Contents:
From the Content: I. Overview -- II. The Lense--Thirring Effect -- III. Detection of Gravitational Waves -- IV. The Equivalence Principle -- V. Clocks and Rods -- VI. Quantum Tests of General Relativity -- VII. Electromagnetivc Field and Gravity.
Summary: Many new tests of gravity and, in particular, of Einstein's general relativity theory will be carried out in the near future: The Lense--Thirring effect and the equivalence principle will be tested in space; moreover, gravitational waves will be detected, and new atomic interferometers and clocks will be built for measurements in gravitational and inertial fields. New high-precision devices have made these experiments feasible. They will contribute to a better understanding of gravitational physics. Both experimental developments and the theoretical concepts are collected in this volume. Exhaustive reviews give an overall insight into the subject of experimental gravitation.
