Particle trapping by a plane gravitational wave

Abstract : Bialynicki-Birula and Charzynski [1] argued that the gravitational wave emitted during the merger of a black hole binary may trap particles. In this Letter we amplify their statement by describing particle motion in the wave proposed by Lukash [2] to study anisotropic cosmological models. Bounded geodesics (found both analytically and numerically) arise when the wave is of Bianchi type VI. Their symmetries are identified.
