Massive Gravitons Stability , and a Review of How Many Gravitons Make up a Gravity Wave Detectable / Congruent with B.P. Abbott,, Nature 460, 991 (2009).

Authors: Andrew Beckwith

The following questions are raised. First, can there be a stable (massive) graviton? Secondly, what is the relationship between a Gravity Wave, and Gravitons? The inter relationship between a graviton, and a gravity wave is raised, with an idea of eventually making sense of a numerical count presented by Claus Kieffer, in his book on Quantum gravity, in conjunction with how a gravity wave/ graviton count could have some over lap.

Comments: 6 pages, 1 figure. Set of notes being turned into an article as to inter relating a graviton count, versus gravitational waves. Will be part of discussions raised in conferences this summer. coming up with specifics as far as the inter relationship
