Interferometric detection of gravitational waves : the definitive test for General Relativity

  title={Interferometric detection of gravitational waves : the definitive test for General Relativity},
  author={Christian Corda},
Even if Einstein’s General Relativity achieved a great success and overcame lots of experimental tests, it also showed some shortcomings and flaws which today advise theorists to ask if it is the definitive theory of gravity. In this essay we show that, if advanced projects on the detection of Gravitational Waves (GWs) will improve their sensitivity, allowing to perform a GWs astronomy, accurate angular and frequency dependent response functions of interferometers for GWs arising from various… CONTINUE READING
