not yet rated|write a review
Current approaches to the cosmological constant problem, and contributions on classical and quantum cosmology, cosmic and quantum strings, classical general relativity, and the experimental search for gravitational radiation, are presented in 19 papers from a September 1990 symposium in Erice, Italy. Also included is a brief autobiographical essay by Peter Gabriel Bergmann, whose work with Einstein, and subsequent work, have made important contributions toward unifying gravitational and electromagnetic theories.
