Product description

From the Back Cover

The theory, observations, and applications of gravitational lensing constitute one of the most rapidly growing branches of astrophysics. The gravitational deflection of light generated by mass concentrations along a light path produces magnification, multiplicity, and distortion of images and delays photon propagation from one line of sight relative to another. The huge amount of scientific work on gravitational lensing produced over the last decade has clearly revealed its already substantial and wide impact and its potential for future astrophysical applications.

The up-to-date contributions in this book are based on the lecture notes of the 33rd Saas–Fee Advanced Course of the Swiss Society of Astronomy and Astrophysics, entitled Gravitational Lensing: Strong, Weak, and Micro. The book comprises four complementary parts, written by leading experts in the field, constituting a genuine textbook about gravitational lensing:

• Peter Schneider – Part 1: Introduction to Gravitational Lensing and Cosmology

• Christopher Kochanek – Part 2: Strong Gravitational Lensing

• Peter Schneider – Part 3: Weak Gravitational Lensing

• Joachim Wambsganss – Part 4: Gravitational Microlensing

Students and researchers alike will benefit from this comprehensive presentation of the astrophysical and astronomical aspects of gravitational lensing.
