One of the key ingredients for making binary waveform predictions in a beyond-GR theory of gravity is understanding the energy and angular momentum carried by gravitational waves and any other radiated ﬁelds. Identifying the appropriate energy functional is unclear in Hassan-Rosen bigravity, a ghost-free theory with one massive and one massless graviton. The diﬃculty arises from the new degrees of freedom and length scales which are not present in GR, rendering an Isaacson-style averaging…
