About the book
Since the evidences of the missing mass problem in galaxies and clusters of galaxies in the 30´s and the proper explanation for the accelerated expandind universe in the late 90’s, the dark matter and dark enegy proposals dramatically changed how to think about gravity. Moreover, the compelling evidences on gravitational waves in 2015, precisely the GW150914 event from a coalescent black hole binary system, a new brick was added to the wall of general theory of relativity, regarded as a new triumph of Einstein's intent. This motivated a total new exploration of the gravitational physics in the XXI century with a brand new era for theoretical, observational and experimental areas of physics and astronomy. All such excitement is justified by the possibility to open a new window to understand the gravitational phenomena in all its facets, and a new path for a unified theory of quantum mechanics and gravitation might be enlightened. "Modern Trends in Gravitational physics" intends to provide the readers, specialists and non-specialists alike, with a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art and recent and future developments covering the fundamental domains of gravitational physics science.
