    • Abstract


      The components of the energy-momentum pseudotensors of Einstein, Tolman, Landau and Lifshitz, and Møller are evaluated for the Vaidya radiating spacetime. These pseudotensors are found to be traceless for this spacetime. The pseudotensors of Einstein and Tolman give exactly same result for all their components. Unlike in the case of the Kerr-Newman field, the pseudotensor of Møller gives the same energy as given by that of the Einstein, Tolman or Landau and Lifshitz.
