**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.
