Gravitational radiation damping

Thorne, Kip S.


An analysis is presented of the emission of gravitational waves by a star in nonradial pulsation. This analysis, rigorous to first order in the pulsation amplitude and to all orders in G and c, exhibits damping of the pulsation as the waves are emitted (gravitational radiation reaction).
