The paper deals with a special kind of problems that appear in solutions of Einstein's field equations for extended bodies: many structure-dependent terms appear in intermediate calculations that cancel exactly in virtue of the local equations of motion or can be eliminated by appropriate gauge transformations. For a single body at rest these problems are well understood for both the post-Newtonian and the post-Minkowskian cases. However, the situation is still unclear for approximations of… 
Post-linear metric of a compact source of matter
The Multipolar Post-Minkowskian (MPM) formalism represents an approach for determining the metric density in the exterior of a compact source of matter. In the MPM formalism the metric density is
Light propagation in 2PN approximation in the monopole and quadrupole field of a body at rest: Initial value problem
The light trajectory in the gravitational field of one body at rest with monopole and quadrupole structure is determined in the second post-Newtonian (2PN) approximation. The terms in the geodesic
Light propagation in the gravitational field of N arbitrarily moving bodies in the 1.5PN approximation for high-precision astrometry
The light-trajectory in the gravitational field of N extended bodies in arbitrary motion is determined in the first post-Newtonian approximation. According to the theory of reference systems, the
