TLDR
Tests of general relativity at the post-Newtonian level have reached high precision, including the light defl ection the Shapiro time delay, the perihelion advance of Mercury, and the Nordtvedt effect in lunar motion.
Theory and Experiment in Gravitational Physics
New technological advances have made it feasible to conduct measurements with precision levels which are suitable for experimental tests of the theory of general relativity. This book has been

TLDR
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.

Gravitational-wave spectroscopy of massive black holes with the space interferometer LISA
Newly formed black holes are expected to emit characteristic radiation in the form of quasinormal modes, called ringdown waves, with discrete frequencies. LISA should be able to detect the ringdown
Black hole normal modes - A semianalytic approach
A new semianalytic technique for determining the complex normal mode frequencies of black holes is presented. The method is based on the WKB approximation. It yields a simple analytic formula that
Bounding the mass of the graviton using gravitational wave observations of inspiralling compact binaries
If gravitation is propagated by a massive field, then the velocity of gravitational waves (gravitons) will depend upon their frequency as
Testing properties of the Galactic center black hole using stellar orbits
The spin and quadrupole moment of the supermassive black hole at the Galactic center can in principle be measured via astrometric monitoring of stars orbiting at milliparsec distances, allowing tests
