"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."
