Astronomers and physicists discuss selected topics in relativistic celestial mechanics, a branch of modern gravitational physics that explores the fundamental structures of space-time by studying the motion of massive bodies such as black holes, stars, planets, as well as elementary particles. They cover the general relativistic two-body problem, Hamiltonian dynamics of spinning compact binaries through high post-Newtonian approximations, the covariant theory of the post-Newtonian equations of motion of extended bodies, the DSX-framework, the general relativistic theory of light propagation in multipolar gravitational fields, the back-reaction problem in cosmology, and post-Newtonian approximations in cosmology, ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
