Abstract [en]

The multipole moments of static axisymmetric asymptotically flat spacetimes are considered. The usual set of recursively defined tensors is replaced with one real-valued function m defined on R+ ∪ {0}, where the moments are given by the derivatives of m at 0. As examples of applications, we show that the Schwarzschild spacetime is the gravitational monopole and derive the metric for the gravitational dipole.
