Current Theoretical Problems 1. ENERGY IN THE GRAVITATIONAL FIELD In principle, the gravitational waves emitted by an antenna carry away energy which can be absorbed by another antenna. Such energy-transmitting waves are often referred to as gravitational radiation. Since gravitational radiation contains energy, it acts as a source of the gravitational field, thereby modifying itself. Owing to this nonlinear self-modification process and the effect which the gravitational field has on the metric of space-time (and on the definition of lengths and time intervals), it is impossible to give a precise statement of exactly where the energy in the gravitational radiation field is located, or how it is distributed, at any given instant.
