I would appreciate if some learned folk could answer these questions to increase my understanding.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. Does GR support standing wave solutions to the equations?

2. Do physicists study these standing wave solutions?

3. Is it correct to describe GR equations as wave equations? (e.g. as Maxwell's equations and Schroedinger equations are)

4. Do Black holes have vibrational modes that depend mainly on the event horizon radius R or 2*pi*R?

5. Would such vibrational modes have periods calculated as R/c and 2*pi*R/c or are relativistic adjustments needed?

6. Are periods related to these vibrational modes observed in galactic core black holes? I know that we cannot observe the gravitational waves, I am referring to associated emissions, such as light, that we might observe.

7. Are GR standing waves ever considered as possibly relevant to large scale structure in the Universe?

Any other comments along similar lines are most welcome.

Thanks

Ray Tomes
