The sun bends the trajectory of light slightly. And a black hole will bend the trajectory entirely. This is all dependent on the proximity to the source of gravity. For a given angle, is there some ...
My understanding of weak gravitational lensing is that it assumes random alignment distribution of galaxies in order to estimate statistical shear and convergences, which are used to estimate matter ...
I am looking into the effects of gravitational lensing of gravitational waves. I know that gravitons travel along null geodesics, just as photons, and so they will suffer the same deflection angle by ...
It is customary in gravitational lensing problems, to project both the background source and the deflecting mass (e.g. a background quasar, and a foreground galaxy acting as a lens) in a plane. Then, ...
Einstein's Cross has been attributed to gravitational lensing. However, most examples of gravitational lensing are crescents known as Einstein's rings. I can easily understand the rings and crescents, ...
