Equations of Motion in General Relativity

Hideki Asada, Toshifumi Futamase, and Peter Hogan


This book focuses attention on two aspects of equations of motion in general relativity: the motion of extended bodies(stars) and the motion of small black holes. The objective is to offer a guide to prospective researchers into these areas of general relativity and to point out open questions and topics that are ripe for further development. It is over forty years since a text on this subject was published and in that time the research area of equations of motion in general relativity has undergone extraordinary development stimulated by the discovery of the binary neutron star PSR 1913+16 in ...

Keywords: general relativity theory, Einstein's theory of gravity, equations of motion, small black holes, PSR 1913+16, binary neutron star
