Abstract

The study proposes a quantum approach to explain existence and main features of the gravitational waves radiated by an isolated two body orbiting system. The quantum eigenvalues of such a system are calculated with the help of the space-time quantum uncertainty, without additional hypotheses via an “ab initio” model. The approach is deliberately non-relativistic: The model does not implement any relativistic assumption and shows that the mere quantum approach is enough to get energy loss and orbit radius contraction coincident with that early inferred by Einstein. However the outcomes of the model also show features typical of the quantum systems, which are purposely discussed.
