Bounds on cosmological variation of fundamental constants of non-gravitational physics. For an in-depth review, see .
The PPN Parameters and their significance (note that has been shown twice to indicate that it is a measure of two effects).
Metric theories and their PPN parameter values ( for all cases). The parameters , , , and denote complicated functions of the arbitrary constants and matching parameters.
Current limits on the PPN parameters.
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 .
Parameters used in the equations of motion.
Parameters of the binary pulsar B1913+16. The numbers in parentheses denote errors in the last digit. Data taken from . Note that is not the same as the PPN parameter [see Eqs. (108*)].
Parameters of other binary pulsars. References may be found in the text. Values for orbit period derivatives include corrections for galactic kinematic effects
