Resolving a gravitational wave memory paradox

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Two different approaches to gravitational perturbation theory appear to give two different answers for the properties of gravitational wave memory. We show that this contradiction is only apparent and the two approaches actually agree.
