General relativity and experiment

Thibault Damour;
Open Access English
  • Published: 08 Dec 1994
Abstract
The confrontation between Einstein's theory of gravitation and experiment is summarized. Although all current experimental data are compatible with general relativity, the importance of pursuing the quest for possible deviations from Einstein's theory is emphasized.
