From the Publisher"This book is not only a monograph on advanced gravitational wave detectors and the astrophysical phenomena they will explore, it also contains a pedagogically fine introduction to the field of gravitational wave science. I recommend it to any budding or mature scientist or engineer who wants an overview of this exciting field and where it is going."
Kip. S. Thorne, Feynman Professor of Theoretical Physics, Emeritus, California Institute of Technology
"Almost 100 years after Einstein introduced his Theory of General Relativity, we are finally on the threshold of making direct detections of gravitational waves ... Advanced Gravitational Wave Detectors gives us an up-to-date view of the science and techniques for making the first detections and then developing yet more sensitive future detectors ... This comprehensive review, written by experts in gravitational waves physics, covers these topics in depth and will serve as a very good introduction for students, while at the same time, being a valuable resource for practitioners in the field."
Barry C. Barish, Linde Professor of Physics Emeritus, California Institute of Technology
