Gauge freedom for gravitational wave problems in tensor-scalar theories of gravity

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A specific choice of gauge is shown to imply a decoupling between the tensor and scalar components of gravitational radiation in the context of Brans-Dicke-type theories of gravitation. The comparison of the predictions of these theories with those of general relativity is thereby made straightforward.
