Since 1975 the triennial Marcel Grossmann Meetings have provided a forum for discussion of recent advances in gravitation, general relativity and relativistic field theories, emphasizing their mathematical foundations, physical predictions and experimental tests. These meetings aim to facilitate exchange among scientists to deepen our understanding of space–time structures and to review the status of ongoing experiments which test Einstein's theory of gravitation from either the ground or space.

The Ninth Marcel Grossmann Meeting took place on July 2-8, 2000 at the University of Rome, Italy. The scientific program included XX plenary talks and XX parallel sessions during which XXX papers were presented. The papers that appear in this book cover all aspects of gravitation, from mathematical issues to recent observations and experiments, attempting to give a complete picture of our current understanding of gravitational theory at the turn of the millennium.
