IN recent years there has been a good deal of controversy about gravitational radiation. Historically, the position is as follows. It was shown quite soon after the publication of the general theory of relativity that the linear approximation to the field equations admits, in certain co-ordinate systems, solutions which have an obvious wave-like character; moreover, it appears from the energy pseudo-tensor that these waves carry energy away from the sources, as in the electromagnetic case…
