Precision tests of general relativity and its alternatives with radio pulsars -- Michael Kramer Colloquium

Our understanding of the cosmos rests currently on the theory of general relativity. However, observed phenomena like Dark Energy may suggest that modifications or alternative theories should be considered. Nevertheless, general relativity has, so far, passed all experimental tests with flying colours. At the same time, stringent constraints can be put on alternative theories. This talk will present the most precise tests available today and will provide a lookout what's possible in the future.
