VOL. 9 | 2008 On the Polarization of Gravitational Waves

Abstract

Physical properties of gravitational waves, belonging to the larger class of exact solutions of Einstein field equations which are invariant for a non-Abelian two-dimensional Lie algebra of Killing fields, are described. It is shown that in the would be quantum theory of gravity they correspond to spin $−1$ massless particles. The gravitational interaction of two pencils of light is analyzed.
