Invariant differential operators and the Karlhede classification of type N vacuum solutions.

Record type: Article

A spacetime calculus based on a single null direction, and which is therefore invariant under null rotations, is employed to show that a type N vacuum solution of Einstein's equations requires the calculation of at most five covariant derivatives of the curvature for its complete Karlhede classification.
