## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi All,

As Einstein said, matter causes dirtortion in space. And he also said Energy and matter are equivalent. I would like to know if is there a formally accepted method of knowing how the space would be curved if there were only one photon in space. Supose this photon had energy E associated with its energy by Planck's law, and had a somewhat definite localization, say, a gaussian shape with 1 mm width.

I would also appreciate your indication of some good references on this subject.

Best Regards

DaTario
