List of Tables

Table 1:
Bounds on cosmological variation of fundamental constants of non-gravitational physics. For an in-depth review, see [262].
Table 2:
The PPN Parameters and their significance (note that α3 has been shown twice to indicate that it is a measure of two effects).
Table 3:
Metric theories and their PPN parameter values (α3 = ζi = 0 for all cases). The parameters γ ′, β′, α′1, and α ′2 denote complicated functions of u and of the arbitrary constants. Here Λ is not the cosmological constant ΛC, but is defined by Equation (37View Equation).
Table 4:
Current limits on the PPN parameters. Here ηN is a combination of other parameters given by η = 4β − γ − 3 − 10ξ∕3 − α + 2α ∕3 − 2ζ ∕3 − ζ ∕3 N 1 2 1 2.
Table 5:
Constancy of the gravitational constant. For binary pulsar data, the bounds are dependent upon the theory of gravity in the strong-field regime and on neutron star equation of state. Big-bang nucleosynthesis bounds assume specific form for time dependence of G.
Table 6:
Parameters of the binary pulsar B1913+16. The numbers in parentheses denote errors in the last digit. Data taken from [18272]. Note that γ ′ is not the same as the PPN parameter γ (see Equations (78View Equation)).
Table 7:
Parameters of other binary pulsars. References may be found in the text; for an online catalogue of pulsars with reasonably up-to-date parameters, see [18].
