Israel Khan derivation step

  1. Jan 3, 2015 #1
    I am looking at the classic paper Israel and Khan "Collinear Particles and Bondi Dipoles in General Relativity"

    Nuovo Cimento 33 (1964) 331.

    The basic question is how to go from equation 2.9 to 2.10?

    a_i is the center of rod i and b_i is the mass of rod i.

    The attached file has the details.

    Thanks!
