Analogue Gravity

  title={Analogue Gravity},
  author={Carlos Ra{\'u}l Barcel{\'o} and Stefano Liberati and Matt Visser},
  booktitle={Living reviews in relativity},
Analogue gravity is a research programme which investigates analogues of general relativistic gravitational fields within other physical systems, typically but not exclusively condensed matter systems, with the aim of gaining new insights into their corresponding problems. Analogue models of (and for) gravity have a long and distinguished history dating back to the earliest years of general relativity. In this review article we will discuss the history, aims, results, and future prospects for… CONTINUE READING
