ABSTRACT

We correct from the previous paper: the first, second
and third order derivatives of the Bondi metric function *J* at the ISCO of the binary system
consisting of a Schwarzschild black hole and a point particle. Previously,
these derivatives where not correctly determined and that resulted in the
incorrect determination of the emitted gravitational radiation at null
infinity. The now correctly calculated gravitational radiation is now in full
agreement with that obtained by the standard 5.5 PN formalism to about ninety
eight percent. The small percentage difference observed is due to the slow
convergence property of the PN formalism as compared to the null cone
formalism, otherwise the results are basically the same.
