Propagation of Gravitational Radiation  

In General > s.a. lensing; numerical methods; relativistic cosmology.
* Idea: Gravitational waves are not absorbed or scattered almost at all, which is bad news for their detection but good for the possibility of using them to observe phenomena that would otherwise be hidden.
