      Every November the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) hosts a winter school on a particular astronomical topic in Tenerife, Spain, part of the Canary Islands.. I attended this year’s school and got a two week crash course on “The Astrophysical Applications of Gravitational Lensing” from experts in the field while hanging out on a volcanic island with .

According to Einstein's theory, the curvature of light-rays increases with mass; gravitational lenses can be used to map the distribution of mass in a Universe in which virtually all matter is dark matter of an unknown nature.

Our work on gravitational lensing by black holes began in Maywhen Christopher Nolan asked us to collaborate on building realistic images of a spinning black hole and its disk, with IMAX resolution, for his science-fiction movie saw this not only as an opportunity to bring realistic black holes into the Hollywood arena, but also an opportunity.

In recent years, gravitational microlensing has been used for the detection of compact astrophysical halo objects. This technique is then applied for the detection of extra-solar planets in the binary systems.

The results of this observation were the discovery of tens of exoplanets through the method. Gravitational lensing is one of a number of methods used to probe the distribution of dark mass in the Universe. On galactic scales, complementary techniques include the use of stellar kinematics, the kinematics and morphology of the neutral gas layer, kinematics of satellites, and the morphology and temperature profile of X-ray by: 9.

A gravitational lens is a distribution of matter (such as a cluster of galaxies) between a distant light source and an observer, that is capable of bending the light from the source as the light travels towards the effect is known as gravitational lensing, and the amount of bending is one of the predictions of Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity.

The gravitational deflection of light generated by mass concentrations along a light path produces magnification, multiplicity, and distortion of images and delays photon propagation from one line of sight relative to another.

Since gravitational lensing is an effect only depending on gravitational potential, it can be used to constrain the mass model of lenses. With the constraints from multiple images or arcs, a proposed mass model can be optimized to fit to the observables. Gravitational Lensing | The observation, in by A.S.

Eddington and collaborators, of the gra- tational de?ection of light by the Sun proved one of the many predictions of Einstein's Theory of General Relativity: The Sun was the?rst example of a gravitational lens.

In the s various authors dealt with astrophysical applications of the gravitational lens effect. Most excitingly it was shown by Refsdal [21] that lensing offers the possibility to measure the Hubble constant which can be used to determine size and age of the by:   Their observations proved that gravitational lensing existed.

While gravitational lensing has existed throughout history, it's fairly safe to say that it was first discovered in the early s. Today, it is used to study many phenomena and objects in the distant universe. Stars and planets can cause gravitational lensing effects, although.

Gravitational lensing is starting to be sufficiently well understood that it can be applied to other astrophysical areas and can help us to address scientific questions that would otherwise be left without any answer. We have tried to reflect this in the present book, as was done in the selection of topics at the “Dark.

Gravitational lensing's modern theoretical framework was established with works by Yu Klimov (), Sidney Liebes (), and Sjur Refsdal (). Gravitational lensing was first observed inin the form of a quasar lensed by a foreground galaxy.

The theory also predicted gravitational lensing, a side effect of light travelling along the curvature of space and time where light passing nearby a massive object is deflected slightly toward.
