Petrov classification of perturbed spacetimes : the Kasner example

In this paper we consider vacuum Kasner spacetimes, focusing on those that can be parametrized as linear perturbations of the special Petrov type D case. For these quasi-D Kasner models we first investigate the modification to the principal null directions, then a Teukolsky Master Equation for fields of any spin, considering in particular the quasi-D models… CONTINUE READING
