The rigorous solution for cylindrical gravitational waves is given. For the convenience of the reader the theory of gravitational waves and their production, already known in principle, is given in the first part of this paper.After encountering relationships which cast doubt on the existence of rigorous solutions for undulatory gravitational field...

... We have provided some physical local mechanisms, compatible with the matter wave theory by Einstein-de Broglie-Schrödinger, that are able to reproduce EPR-like correlations. This suggests that there is no longer any reason to think that quantum mechanics cannot be modified in the way envisioned by de Broglie, Einstein and Schrödinger [40,41,42,44,45]. Indeed it is unfortunate that today most bohmians have forgotten what even Bohm later recognized [46,47], that is to say the importance of finishing the double solution program by de Broglie, where particles are nothing but classical solutions of relativistic non-linear wave equations. ...
... Albert Einstein called quantum entanglement "spooky action at a distance" (Einstein et al., 1935), predicting that quantum mechanics should allow objects to influence each other's action at great distance. It took other Nobel prize winning physicists' decades after Einstein's death to confirm his prediction. ...
... According to the opponent (Viktor H. Toth), the author's solution of this problem is incorrect. The essence of the objections is the same as A. Einstein's objections [34] to L. Silberstein's solution [35] of the two-body problem in general relativity concerning the non-analyticity of the metric obtained in [35]. The correct approach to the study of the problem of an infinite homogeneous plane in GR, according to the opponent, is set out in the work [36] 12 . ...
... Gravitational waves were again put into doubt when Einstein, with Rosen, concluded that they could not exist in GR due to the presence of a singularity. Robertson realised that this was only a coordinate singularity which lead to Einstein concluding that gravitational waves do in fact exist [5]. The confusion due to coordinate systems was finally settled several decades later when Pirani used the coordinate independent Riemann curvature tensor to reach the same conclusion [6]. ...
