The Kerr black hole hypothesis: a review of methods and results
While a general, powerful framework for testing and constraining gravity theories in the weak field, slow-moving regime exists for several decades (the parametrized post-Newtonian formalism), an
Editor's Note: An Example of a New Type of Cosmological Solutions of Einstein's Field Equations of Gravitation.
Kurt Godel became interested in general relativity theory while he and Einstein were both on staff of the Institute for Advanced Studies in Princeton, and saw a lot of each other (Ref. 25, p.7, Ref.

The dynamics of brane-world cosmological models 1 A.A. Coley Abstract: Brane-world cosmology is motivated by recent developments in string/M-theory and offers a new perspective on the hierarchy
in general relativity : binary black holes and hyperbolic formulations of Einstein ' s equations
This thesis consists of three projects in general relativity on topics related to binary black holes and the gravitational waves they emit. The first project involves calculating a four-metric that
Theory of superconductivity of gravitation and the dark matter enigma
In this article, the question of the nature of cold dark matter is approached from a new angle. By invoking the Cauchy problem of relativity it is shown how, under very precise astrophysical
Numerical relativity (numerical solution of Einstein equations) is rapidly becoming a major tool for the study of relativistic phenomena. In the last decade, we have developed a good understanding of
Experimental tests of a new theory of gravitation
The predictions for the perihelion shift, the deflection of light, and the delay time of a light ray are calculated in the nonsymrnetric theory of gravitation. An upper bound for the parameter /(that
All solutions of Einstein’s equations in 2+1 dimensions: Λ-vacuum, pure radiation, or gyratons
Under a weak assumption of the existence of a geodesic null congruence, we present the general solution of the Einstein field equations in three dimensions with any value of the cosmological
Measure problem in cosmology
The Hamiltonian structure of general relativity provides a natural canonical measure on the space of all classical universes, i.e., the multiverse. We review this construction and show how one can
