comment Are third derivatives of metric perturbations zero?
Thanks Ben. I'm starting to think this was a poorly worded question. But to address some of the points you brought up. No, I do not believe the paper ever mentions any approximations it invokes about $h''' =0$. Yes, you are absolutely right about the tensorial nature of the metric, and I feel really dumb for not remembering it. I think the major issue is that I need to work out all of the algebra they apply to get to the perturbation equations before I can ask the correct question. Thanks again.
