# Gravitational Radiation Theory and Light Propagation

@article{Blanchet2000GravitationalRT, title={Gravitational Radiation Theory and Light Propagation}, author={Luc Blanchet and Sergei Kopeikin and Gerhard Schāfer}, journal={Lecture Notes in Physics}, year={2000}, volume={562}, pages={141-166} }

The paper gives an introduction to the gravitational radiation theory of isolated sources and to the propagation properties of light rays in radiative gravitational fields. It presents a theoretical study of the generation, propagation, back-reaction, and detection of gravitational waves from astrophysical sources. After reviewing the various quadrupole-moment laws for gravitational radiation in the Newtonian approximation, we show how to incorporate post-Newtonian corrections into the source…
