Gravitational Waves in Einstein-aether Theory

We study gravitational waves produced by N-body systems in Einstein-aether theory. In particular, we calculate the gravitational waveforms, polarizations, response functions of the detectors and the radiation power by using the post-Newtonian approximations to the lowest order. Applying the general formulas to three different triple systems with periodic orbits, we find that the scalar breathing mode and the scalar longitudinal mode (h_b and h_L) are all suppressed by a factor of c_14
