Résumé

The formulation of gravitation theory in the light cone gauge is studied. After a brief discussion of Yang- Mills theory for purposes of illustration, tensor and scalartensor gravitation are investigated. We show that if the gauge conditions are properly chosen the constrained components of the metric tensor can be explicitly solved for by quadrature, so that the field theory can be reformulated entirely in terms of the physical transverse fields. It is also shown that the light cone gauge is useful for finding wave solutions of classical field equations. Occasional reference is made to dual models, primarily to explain our motivation, but familiarity with them is not required for an understanding of this paper.
