### strong-field gravity

(gravity much stronger than in the solar system such as near a black hole)

**Strong-field gravity** is gravity in the region of an
object of sufficient mass that the effects of general relativity
such as gravitational waves are pronounced. The solar system
shows the effects of general relativity, but only
through very precise measurement. Near a black hole
or neutron star, these effects are pronounced.
**Strong-field gravity physics** is the study of
physical laws in this regime.
