Gravitational Wave Experiments and Early Universe Cosmology
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 100

Description:
Gravitational-wave experiments with interferometers and with resonant masses can search for stochastic backgrounds of gravitational waves of cosmological origin. We review both experimental and theoretical aspects of the search for these backgrounds.
