Gravitational waves in the general theory of relativity

I. Invariant formulation of the theory of gravitational radiation
  • I. M. Dozmorov


The problem of gravitational radiation is discussed with the help of the Rodichev energy-momentum tensor. An invariant criterion is formulated for finding radiation in a space without sources. In general, the question of the presence of radiation in a system is resolved by a local study of the behavior of the energy-momentum tensor in the “comoving” tetrad. The results are applied to the study of certain exact solutions of the Einstein equations.
