Solutions of the Einstein equations which are periodic and have standing gravitational waves, in the weak-field zone, are valuable approximations to more physically realistic solutions with outgoing waves. A variational principle for the periodic solutions is found which has the power to provide, for binary systems with weak gravitational radiation, an accurate estimate of the relationship between the mass and angular momentum of the system, the masses and angular momenta of the components, the… CONTINUE READING
