Title: Nonexpanding impulsive gravitational waves with an arbitrary cosmological constant
Authors: Podolsky, J.
Griffiths, J.B.
Keywords: impulsive gravitational waves
{anti-} de Sitter space
Issue Date: 1999
Abstract: Exact solutions for nonexpanding impulsive waves in a background with nonzero cosmological constant are constructed using a 'cut and paste' method. These solutions are presented using a unified approach which covers the cases of de Sitter, anti-de Sitter and Minkowski backgrounds. The metrics are presented in continuous and distributional forms, both of which are conformal to the corresponding metrics for impulsive pp-waves, and for which the limit as Lambda-->0 can be made explicitly.
