Question Understand intuitively 4th boundary condition of gravitational wave
Suppose we have a gravitational wave which obeys the equation: $[G{tt}-c^{2}G{xx}]h{\mu\nu}=0$ Lets take the case where $h{\mu\nu}\ne0$ so we are left with the classical wave equation.Suppose for simplicity that the gravitational wave has a wavelength of 1m so we get the following boundary cond...

Question How are gravitational waves derived?
Gravitational waves can be derived from the non-linear Einstein field equations and since they are by definition waves they must obey the wave equation: $u{tt}=c^{2}u{xx}$ but in General Relativity time and space are not fixed so how are $t$ and $x$ defined for a gravitational wave?

Comment Post #288251 Just suppose we solve this problem as boundary condition problem,not by just solving the ODE in the "simplest" way

Question What do eigenfunctions and eigenvalues mean physically?
Lets say we have a mass connected to a spring.Assuming not any friction the ODE which describes the system is $m\frac{d^{2}x}{dt^{2}} = -kx$ We can set 2 Dirichlet boundary conditions $x(0)=0$ and $x(c)=0$ where $c$ will depend on $k,m$ If we solve the boundary condition problem we end up w...
