The Fourteenth Marcel Grossmann Meeting on Recent Developments in Theoretical and Experimental General Relativity, Astrophysics and Relativistic Field Theories : proceedings of the MG14 Meeting on General Relativity, University of Rome "La Sapienza", Italy 12-18 July 2015 / editors: Massimo Bianchi (University of Rome "Tor Vergata", Rome, Italy), Robert T. Jantzen (Villanova University, Villanova, PA, USA); series editor: Remo Ruffini (International Center for Relativistic Astrophysics (ICRA), University of Rome "La Sapienza", Rome, Italy, International Center for Relativistic Astrophysics Network (ICRANet), Pescara, Italy)

"The four volumes of the proceedings of MG14 give a broad view of all aspects of gravitational physics and astrophysics, from mathematical issues to recent observations and experiments. The scientific program of the meeting included 35 morning plenary talks over 6 days, 6 evening popular talks and 100 parallel sessions on 84 topics over 4 afternoons. Volume A contains plenary and review talks ranging from the mathematical foundations of classical and quantum gravitational theories including recent developments in string theory, to precision tests of general relativity including progress towards the detection of gravitational waves, and from supernova cosmology to relativistic astrophysics, including topics such as gamma ray bursts, black hole physics both in our galaxy and in active galactic nuclei in other galaxies, and neutron star, pulsar and white dwarf astrophysics. The remaining volumes include parallel sessions which touch on dark matter, neutrinos, X-ray sources, astrophysical black holes, neutron stars, white dwarfs, binary systems, radiative transfer, accretion disks, quasars, gamma ray bursts, supernovas, alternative gravitational theories, perturbations of collapsed objects, analog models, black hole thermodynamics, numerical relativity, gravitational lensing, large scale structure, observational cosmology, early universe models and cosmic microwave background anisotropies, inhomogeneous cosmology, inflation, global structure, singularities, chaos, Einstein-Maxwell systems, wormholes, exact solutions of Einstein's equations, gravitational wave detectors and data analysis, precision gravitational measurements, loop quantum gravity, quantum cosmology, self-gravitating systems, gamma ray astronomy, cosmic rays and the history of general relativity"...
