Seminar TitleProbing relativistic gravity with radio astronomy

We experience a golden era in testing and exploring relativistic gravity.
Whether it is results from gravitational wave detectors, satellite or lab
experiments, radio astronomy plays an important complementary role.
Here one can mention the cosmic microwave background, black hole
imaging and, obviously, binary pulsars. This talk will provide an overview
how these methods relate to each other, and will in particular focus on new
results from the study of binary pulsars, where we can test the behaviour
of strongly self-gravitating bodies with unrivalled precision.
