AN ASYMPTOTICALLY FLAT H-SPACE

Abstract:
The null geodesic equation is solved for the ℋ space of Sparling and Tod. Bondi coordinates are found and it is verified that the ℋ space construction is idempotent, i.e., the ℋ-space of this ℋ space is itself, symbolically ℋ2 = ℋ. Properties of the solution are used to motivate a definition of asymptotic flatness. © 1981 Plenum Publishing Corporation.
