Gravitational waves from an axisymmetric source in the Nonsymmetric Gravitational Theory
Abstract
We examine gravitational waves in an isolated axisymmetric reflexion symmetric system in the framework of the Nonsymmetric Gravitational Theory ( ngt). The vacuum field equations are analyzed and the exact solution for the field variables in the metric tensor are found in the form of expansions in powers of a radial coordinate. We find that when the system radiates, the mass decreases monotonically and the energy flux associated with waves is positive.
