Description 1 online resource.
Bibliography Note Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary Einstein's theory of general relativity describes the gravitational field of a system of stars and predicts their paths by providing the 'equations of motion' of each star. Extracting these equations from his field equations is a highly technical procedure described in this book.
Contents Introduction -- Foundations of the post-Newtonian approximation -- The third post-Newtonian approximation -- Two-body problem in general relativity -- Small black holes : geometrical preliminaries -- Small charged black holes : equations of motion -- Gravitational physics of few-body systems.
