Common solutions of the einstein and BransDicke theories
Abstract
It is shown that nontrivial solutions common to the vacuum field equations of the Einstein and of the BransDicke theories necessarily representppwaves and the set of all common solutions is precisely the set of allppwave solutions of the Einstein equations. The form of the associated scalar field is found and is shown to be singular when ω<‑1.
