The Newtonian limit at intermediate energies
Abstract
We study the metric solutions for the gravitational equations in Modified Gravity Models (MGMs). In models with negative powers of the scalar curvature, we show that the Newtonian Limit (NL) is well defined as a limit at intermediate energies, in contrast with the usual low energy interpretation. Indeed, we show that the gravitational interaction is modified at low densities or low curvatures.

AXISYMMETRIC SHOCKS IN THE NEWTONIAN LIMIT FOR NONRIGID BOUNDARIES
The natural generalization of the snowplow equation in twodimensional axisymmetric or Cartesian geometries is a Newtonian approximation in which the possibility of surface deformation is admitted. Such a general Newtonian approximation is derived from the Lagrangian fluid equations, using a idealgas model in the limit of strong shock and high density ratio across the shock front. In one dimension the result reduces properly to the snowplow equation. In two dimensions, if the surface is constrained and the motion steady, the result consists of the Newtonian plus Busemann'' terms. The general result contains in addition a Coriolis term. The general theorymore » 
Hamiltonian formulation of gravitating perfect fluids and the Newtonian limit
The canonical formalism is applied to selfgravitating perfect fluids with particular emphasis on recovering the correct nonrelativistic limit also in (quasi) Hamiltonian form. We use essentially Lagrangian coordinates by considering the fluid defined by a map from spacetime into a threedimensional material manifold which is equipped with a volume element representing physically the matter (baryon number) density. By eliminating the coordinate freedom in this material space the usual matter conservation and (relativistic) Euler equations are recovered in a (3+1)dimensional formalism which makes it very easy to compare them to their nonrelativistic limits. By splitting the 3metric and its canonical momentamore » 
Gravitational radiation reaction in the Newtonian limit
The asymptotic approximation scheme based on the theory of the Newtonian limit developed in the preceding paper is applied to the gravitational radiationreaction problem. All divergences encountered in previous approaches disappear: For any epsilon the asymptotic approximation is finite to all orders we have calculated, even beyond radiationreaction order. This is because the divergent terms in previous work were misordered, and make finite contributions to coefficients of lowerorder terms in the asymptotic expansion. The logarithmic divergences, in particular, turn up as an epsilon/sup 10/ lnepsilon term in the asymptotic expansion (i.e., between 2.5 and 3 postNewtonian order) which shows thatmore » 
Gravitational radiation and the validity of the farzone quadrupole formula in the Newtonian limit of general relativity
We examine the gravitational radiation emitted by a sequence of spacetimes whose nearzone Newtonian limit we have previously studied. The spacetimes are defined by initial data which scale in a Newtonian fashion: the density as epsilon/sup 2/, velocity as epsilon, pressure as epsilon/sup 4/, where epsilon is the sequence parameter. We asymptotically approximate the metric at an event which, as epsilon..>..0, remains a fixed number of gravitational wavelengths distant from the system and a fixed number of wave periods to the future of the initial hypersurface. We show that the radiation behaves like that of linearized theory in a Minkowskimore »
