1.3 Notation and conventions

Throughout the article we assume the “MTW” [80Jump To The Next Citation Point] conventions. We also generally assume geometrized units c = G = 1, unless specifically noted otherwise. A coordinate basis will always be used, with spacetime indices denoted by lowercase Greek letters that range over {0, 1,2,3} (time being the zeroth coordinate), and purely spatial indices denoted by lowercase Latin letters that range over {1,2,3}. Unless otherwise noted, we assume the Einstein summation convention.
