Generalising Newton's legislations of gravitation, common relativity is among the pillars of recent physics. whereas functions before everything have been constrained to remoted results comparable to a formal realizing of Mercury's orbit, the second one 1/2 the 20 th century observed an immense improvement of functions. those comprise cosmology, gravitational waves, or even very sensible effects for satellite tv for pc dependent positioning platforms in addition to varied techniques to unite common relativity with one other very profitable department of physics – quantum theory.

On the occassion of basic relativity's centennial, best scientists within the assorted branches of gravitational examine overview the historical past and up to date advances in most cases fields of functions of the speculation, which was once stated through Lev Landau as “the most lovely of the prevailing actual theories”.
