In the now closed ATM thread http://www.bautforum.com/against-mainstream/63081-harmonics-theory.html I made some statements about the possible existence of standing waves in general relativity that were challenged by Nereid. This was near the end of the 30 days and the matter was not sufficiently addressed by me. However it did alert me to the fact that things that I had assumed would be accepted facts about some aspects of GR in the large scale structure of the universe were in fact not so. Since then I have made several attempts to get answers on these issues from physicists without a great deal of success. The questions were sent to sci.physics.research and did not appear (probably a moderator decision). I asked a physicist who said I could only have one question. Then I tried http://www.physicsforums.com/ where the thread http://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?p=1457174 has had a couple of replies but they are not really helping a heck of a lot. So I thought that I would try here.

I would appreciate if some learned folk could answer these questions to increase my understanding.

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
