Abstract : The special case of gravitational radiation is singled out with the aid of the requirement that no field sources exist inside the spacetime region in question. The role of field equations is played by the Bianchi identities, which assume in the weakfield approximation on a form analogous to the Maxwell equations for the electromagnetic field in vacuum. The author proposes to regard this analogy as the starting point when studying the nature of gravitational radiation.
