It is shown how the non-radial oscillations of a Newtonian star (i. e. a star built in the Newtonian framework) can be treated fully relativistically as the result of the scattering of gravitational radiation by its own, shallow, curved spacetime. It has the distinguishing characteristic that no gravitational radiation emerges.

Quasinormal modes: the characteristic `sound' of black holes and neutron stars

Gravitational waves emitted by perturbed black holes or relativistic stars are dominated by `quasinormal ringing', damped oscillations at single frequencies which are characteristic of the underlying

High-frequency behavior of w-mode pulsations of compact stars

We study the asymptotic behavior of the quasinormal modes (QNMs) of $w$-mode pulsations of compact stars in the high-frequency regime. We observe that both the axial and polar $w$-mode QNMs attain

The relativistic theory of non-radial oscillations of stars is based on the study of the scattering of gravitational waves by the potential barrier generated by the spacetime curvature. The

On the non-radial oscillations of a star

A complete theory of the non-radial oscillations of a static spherically symmetric distribution of matter, described in terms of an energy density and an isotropic pressure, is developed, ab initio,

On spherical free gravitational waves

The theory of spherical gravitational waves propagated in Minkowski space is considered in the context of the non-radial oscillations of stars in general relativity. (For a review see Ferrari 1992.)

The Mathematical Theory of Black Holes

In a course of lectures on the ‘underlying mathematical structures of classical gravitation theory’ given in 1978, Brandon Carter began with the statement ‘If I had been asked five years ago to
