In a discussion concerning:
there were a number of answers claiming that the flatness of the Ricci space (Rµv=0) does not necessarily entail the flatness of the Riemannian spacetime. This is explained by the fact that besides the Ricci tensor, the Riemann curvature tensor depends also on the Weyl tensor said to govern the propagation of gravitational radiation. And although Rµv=0, the Weyl tensor can still be non-zero.
That being so, it seems that there are some gravitational forces not included in Einstein's field equations, as the Ricci tensor (Rµv) and the Einstein's tensor (Gµv) are said to be trace-reversed (meaning that when one of them vanishes, the other does too). So, if Rµv=0 does not exclude the presence of gravitation - gravitational radiation can still be found through Weyl tensor - then (since Gµv=0) Einstein's gravitational field equations must be incomplete?
Yet there immediately arises another - and in my opinion, more important - question:
What is the source of this gravitational radiation, since Rµv=0 means the whole universe is void of matter?
