Physikzentrum Bad Honnef
Hauptstr. 5, 53604 Bad Honnef, Germany

Event partner:

Scientific Topics

Equations of motion in General Relativity (GR) and in alternative gravity theories (motion of extended test bodies, self-force, self-gravitating/heavy bodies, test bodies with microstructure)
Approximation methods linked to the derivation of the equations of motion (multipolar, post-Newtonian, post-Minkowskian)
Current and future observations (gravitational waves, pulsars, celestial mechanics, astrometry, satellite experiments)
