Abstract : The contract was concerned with gravitation and its relation with astrophysics, geophysics and other parts of physics. Highly precise null-experiments were performed, one for the first time, one representing a thousand-fold improvement over previous experiments. The known tests of gravitational theory were reexamined and one has been challenged by the solar oblateness observed by the group. Many of the astrophysical and geophysical implications of gravitational theory have been examined. (Author)
