Download e-book for iPad: Fundamentals of Interferometric Gravitational Wave Detectors by Peter R Saulson

By Peter R Saulson

LIGO's contemporary discovery of gravitational waves was once headline information world wide. many of us should want to comprehend extra approximately what a gravitational wave is, how LIGO works, and the way LIGO features as a detector of gravitational waves.

This ebook goals to speak the fundamental common sense of interferometric gravitational wave detectors to scholars who're new to the sphere. It assumes that the reader has a easy wisdom of physics, yet no unique familiarity with gravitational waves, with common relativity, or with the specific thoughts of experimental physics. the entire helpful rules are built within the book.

The first version was once released in 1994. because the publication is geared toward explaining the actual rules at the back of the layout of LIGO, it stands the try out of time. For the second one version, an Epilogue has been further; it brings the remedy of technical info brand new, and gives references that might permit a scholar to turn into trained with cutting-edge designs.
