Mass loss by gravitational radiation in Synge's theory
Abstract
Using Synge's definition of mass for material systems, the variation of mass due to the radiation of gravitational waves is derived to any order of approximation with respect to the parameter associated with the weakness of the gravitational field generated. When certain additional boundary conditions are imposed, the result is analogous to the quadrupole formula and reduces to it in the first approximation.
