The Confrontation between General Relativity and Experiment
by

Publisher: arXiv
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.

This is an undergraduate textbook on general relativity. It is well adapted for self-study, and answers are given in the back of the book for almost all the problems. The ratio of conceptual to mathematical problems is higher than in most books.
