    • Abstract


      Recently Rosen and the present author obtained the energy and momentum densities of cylindrical gravitational waves in Einstein’s prescription and found them to be finite and reasonable. In the present paper we calculate the same in the prescriptions of Tolman as well as Landau and Lifshitz and discuss the results.
