Remarks on gravitational experiments

  • J. Weber


The essentially new features of the methods proposed earlier for measurement of the Riemann tensor and search for gravitational radiation are emphasized. Reply is made to the criticism of Gertsenshtein, Pustovoit and Ginzburg.


Si mettono in evidenza le caratteristiche essenzialmente nuove dei metodi precedentemente proposti per la misura del tensore di Riemann e per la riceroa della radiazione gravitazionale. Si risponde alle critiche di GERTSENSHTEIN, PUSTOVOIT e GINZBURG.
