The farfield of a gravitating source in relation to its interior.
Abstract
We prove that in the context of the first postNewtonian perfect fluid theory it is possible to express the farfield metric tensor of an arbitrary perfectfluid source in terms of parameters, which are known as threedimensional volume integrals over the source's interior. Such a description for an arbitrary source is not known in the context of the exacty theory of gravity. It seems that the approximate description presented here is the only and the more general one valid consistently to the postNewtonian approximation.
