Modified and Quantum Gravity: From Theory to Experimental Searches on All Scales

Editors: Christian Pfeifer, Claus Laemmerzahl
Part of the book series: Lecture Notes in Physics (LNP, volume 1017) Springer, Cham (2023)

This book discusses theoretical predictions and their comparison with experiments of extended and modified classical and quantum theories of gravity. The goal is to provide a readable access and broad overview over different approaches to the topic to graduate and PhD students as well as to young researchers. The book presents both, theoretical and experimental insights and is structured in three parts. The first addresses the theoretical models beyond special and general relativity such as string theory, Poincare gauge theory and teleparallelism as well as Finsler gravity. In turn, the second part is focused on the observational effects that these models generate, accounting for tests and comparisons which can be made on all possible scales: from the universe as a whole via binary systems, stars, black holes, satellite experiments, down to laboratory experiments at micrometer and smaller scales. The last part of this book is dedicated to quantum systems and gravity, showing tests of classical gravity with quantum systems, and coupling of quantum matter and gravity.

The book was initiated during the 740. Heraeus Seminar “Experimental Tests and Signatures of Modified and Quantum Gravity” in February 2021.
