**The Confrontation between General Relativity and Experiment**

by Clifford M. Will

**Publisher**: arXiv 2014**Number of pages**: 113

**Description**:

The status of experimental tests of general relativity and of theoretical frameworks for analyzing them are reviewed and updated. Tests of general relativity at the post-Newtonian level have reached high precision, including the light deflection, the Shapiro time delay, the perihelion advance of Mercury, the Nordtvedt effect in lunar motion, and frame-dragging.

**Introduction to General Relativity**

by

**Gerard 't Hooft**-

**Rinton Press**

The book presents the general relativity as a scheme for describing the gravitational field and the equations it obeys. Starting from physical motivations, curved coordinates are introduced, and then the notion of an affine connection field is added.

**Partial Differential Equations of Physics**

by

**arXiv**

All partial differential equations that describe physical phenomena in space-time can be cast into a universal quasilinear, first-order form. We describe some broad features of systems of differential equations so formulated.

**Space, Time and Gravitation: An Outline of the General Relativity Theory**

by

**Arthur Stanley Eddington**-

**Cambridge University Press**

The author gives an account of general relativity theory without introducing anything very technical in the way of mathematics, physics, or philosophy. It is hoped that the book may also appeal to those who have gone into the subject more deeply.
