Standing waves in general relativity

We propose a covariant definition of standing gravitational waves in general relativity.

Letter: Some Remarks on Standing Gravitational Waves

An intuitive definition of standing gravitational waves is proposed. Some main classes of exact vacuum solutions are searched for standing gravitational waves, in most cases with a negative result.

Freely falling bodies in a standing-wave spacetime

We study the motion of free masses subject to the influence of standing gravitational waves in the polarized Gowdy cosmology with a three-torus topology. We show that antinodes attract freely falling

The superposition of gravitational waves travelling in different directions can readily be treated in the linear approximation, which, however, is not very revealing. Attempting a fuller analysis of

Cross-polarized cylindrical gravitational waves of Einstein and Rosen

SummaryUsing Einstein-Rosen’s linearly polarized waves as the seed solution, we derive an interesting solution for the Einstein’s equations that describes the evolution of such waves with the second

Gravitational waves in general relativity VIII

Novel polyfunctional compounds and a process for their preparation are disclosed. These compounds and their alkali metal salts are useful metal sequestrants and/or detergent builders. Selected

Backreaction for Einstein-Rosen waves coupled to a massless scalar field

We present a one-parameter family of exact solutions to Einstein's equations that may be used to study the nature of the Green-Wald backreaction framework. Our explicit example is a family of

A gravitational analogue of Faraday rotation

In an effort to shed some light on the problem of nonlinear interaction of gravitational radiation we have studied the behaviour of cylindrical gravitational waves in vacuum. When only one mode of
