Post-Newtonian Gravitational Radiation

  title={Post-Newtonian Gravitational Radiation},
  author={Luc Blanchet},
Let us declare that the most important devoir of any physical theory is to draw firm predictions for the outcome of laboratory experiments and astronomical observations. Unfortunately, the devoir is quite difficult to fulfill in the case of general relativity, essentially because of the complexity of the Einstein field equations, to which only few exact solutions are known. For instance, it is impossible to settle the exact prediction of this theory when there are no symmetry in the problem (as… CONTINUE READING
