  • A study of the Aichelburg-Sexl boost of the Schwarzschild field is described in which the emphasis is placed on the field (curvature tensor) with the metric playing a secondary role. This is motivated by a description of the Coulomb field of a charged particle viewed by an observer whose speed relative to the charge approaches the speed of light. Our approach is exemplified by carrying out an Aichelburg-Sexl-type boost on the Weyl vacuum gravitational field due to an isolated axially symmetric… CONTINUE READING
