Gravitons and photons
Abstract
An asymptotically flat, right flat, empty solution of the complex EinsteinMaxwell equations is used as a model for a nonlinear photongraviton pair. It is shown that, under certain restrictive conditions, there is a one to one correspondence between such solutions and two functions. Outgoing and incoming photongraviton fields are defined for a certain class of real solutions of the EinsteinMaxwell equations and, finally, a graviton scalar product is constructed.
