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 order. Most sections are very in depth while still having understandable by: Gravitational Waves book. Read 11 reviews from the world's largest community for readers. Until then, investigation of the universe had depended on elect /5. 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 . In Gravity's Kiss, Harry Collins―who has been watching the science of gravitational wave detection for forty-three of those fifty years and has written three previous books about it―offers a final, fascinating account, written in real time, of the unfolding of one of the most remarkable scientific discoveries ever by: 7.
This book is about "gravity waves". (As the author points out, they are more properly called "gravitational waves" but the more common term "gravity waves" is used in the book.) The title "Einstein's Unfinished Symphony" is a reference to Einstein's theory of General Relativity's predicting that large moving objects would create waves in spacetime, which are these "gravity waves /5(11). The subject of this volume is the observation and modelling of the gravity wave field in the atmosphere. The focus is on the question of how to include the effects of small-scale gravity waves in sophisticated global climate models. The book comprises 26 chapters, including contributions from. The aim of this book is to become THE reference text for gravitational-wave physics, covering in detail both the experimental and the theoretical aspects. It is he only existing book on gravitational waves, and it will likely remain unique for its broadeness and scope. It brings the reader to the forefront of present-day research, both theoretical and experimental, assuming . An Introduction to Atmospheric Gravity Waves. Edited by Carmen J. Nappo.

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 the personal passions and sacrifices of. The books covers the latest information on Gravitational waves and what this means. So, it makes you wonder as space is infinite, therefore gravity is infinite, but gravitational waves are ripple effects in space time. Meaning gravitational waves are a way the universe transports energy to the far reaches of the cosmos.5/5(1). In fluid dynamics, gravity waves are waves generated in a fluid medium or at the interface between two media when the force of gravity or buoyancy tries to restore equilibrium. An example of such an interface is that between the atmosphere and the ocean, which gives rise to wind waves. Engagingly written and authoritatively comprehensive, Gravity’s Shadow explores the people, institutions, and government organizations involved in the detection of gravitational waves. This sociological history will prove essential not only to sociologists and historians of science but to scientists themselves.
