{1} A plane wave of light from a laser has a wavelength of 600 nm. The light
is incident on an opaque screen with two opened and identical slits. After
passing through the double slit the light is observed on another screen 100
cm beyond the double sl

Gravitational Waves
16—1. Show that the gravitational wave spacetime (16.2) has three Killing
vectors: (0,1,0,0), (0,0,1,0), and (1,0,0,1).
Solution: The metric (16.2) is a function only of z — t. It is therefore
unchanged by displacements in 1
