Angular momentum at null infinity. (English) Zbl 1136.83316
Summary: The definition of angular momentum recently given by {\it R. Penrose} [Proc. R. Soc. Lond. Ser. A 381, No. 1780, 53--63 (1982)] is analysed on $I$. It is shown that this definition is essentially a supertranslation of previous definitions [for example, the one by Streubel in Gen. Relativity Gravitation 9, No. 6, 551--561 (1978)]. The origin dependence of Penrose’s angular momentum is shown to have the correct form. Based on Penrose’s expression, the authors then define a momentum for all elements of the BMS Lie algebra, which is the first such expression with the property that its flux vanishes identically in Minkowski space.
