GRG Topical Collection “Testing the Kerr spacetime with gravitational-wave and electromagnetic observations”

We are please to inform you that the Topical Collection on “Testing the Kerr spacetime with gravitational-wave and electromagnetic observations”, edited by Emanuele Berti, has been completed and is free-to-read until 11 December 2019.

One of the Holy Grails of observational astronomy is to confirm the prediction that black holes in the Universe are described by the Kerr solution of Einstein’s field equations of general relativity. This Topical Collection provides a status report of theoretical and experimental progress towards confirming the “Kerr paradigm” through X-ray astronomy, gravitational lensing, stellar tidal disruption events, superradiance, and gravitational-wave observations of black hole binary mergers.
