Gravity wave cancellation cause space expansion?

  1. Jan 8, 2016 #1
    Is it possible that the increased acceleration of the universe could be caused by the cancellation of gravity waves? If not, what would be the impact on space-time when gravity waves do cancel out?

    Hi udtsith! Can you elaborate on what 'cancellation of gravity waves' means? I'm not aware of any such phenomenon.
