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 given in harmonic coordinates and in terms of symmetric tracefree (STF) multipoles. In this investigation, the post-linear metric density of this formalism is used in order to determine the post-linear metric tensor in the exterior of a compact source of matter. The metric tensor is given in harmonic…

Post-linear metric of a solar system body
A precise modeling of light trajectories in the solar system on the sub-micro-arcsecond and nano-arcsecond scale of accuracy requires the metric tensor of solar system bodies in post-linear
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


Gravitational Radiation from Post-Newtonian Sources and Inspiralling Compact Binaries
The article reviews the current status of a theoretical approach to the problem of the emission of gravitational waves by isolated systems in the context of general relativity and presents the equations of binary motion at the third post-Newtonian (3PN) order beyond the Newtonian acceleration.
On the Post-linear Quadrupole-Quadrupole Metric
The Hartle-Thorne metric defines a reliable spacetime for most astrophysical purposes, for instance simulations of slowly rotating stars. Solving the Einstein field equations, we added terms of
The linearized field equations of general relativity in harmonic coordinates are given by an inhomogeneous wave equation. In the region exterior to the matter field, the retarded solution of this
Two-post-Newtonian light propagation in the scalar-tensor theory: An N-point mass case
Within the framework of the scalar-tensor theory, its second post-Newtonian (2PN) approximation is obtained with Chandrasekhar's approach. By focusing on an N-point mass system as the first step, we
Post-linear Schwarzschild solution in harmonic coordinates: Elimination of structure-dependent terms
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
On the multipole expansion of the gravitational field
The multipole expansion (in general relativity) of the gravitational field generated by a slowly-moving isolated source is constructed. We introduce some definitions for the source multipole moments,
Post-Newtonian generation of gravitational waves.
This paper derives a new multipole-moment gravitational wave generation formalism for slowly moving, weakly stressed, weakly self-gravitating systems. In this formalism the first-post-Newtonian (O(v
Numerical versus analytical accuracy of the formulae for light propagation
Numerical integration of the differential equations of light propagation in the Schwarzschild metric shows that in some situations relevant for practical observations the well-known post-Newtonian

From the multipole moments the expressions of the asymptotic gravitational waveform and associated energy generated by the source at the 2-PN approximation will be used in the future observations of gravitational radiation by laser interferometric detectors.
Scalar-tensor propagation of light in the inner solar system at the millimetric level
In a recent paper [1], motivated by forthcoming space experiments involving propagation of light in the Solar System, we have proposed an extention of the IAU metric equations at the c level in
