In this review we examine the amplitude intensity associated to tensorial and non-tensorial polarization modes generated by binary systems at their inspiral stage, within the alternative theories of gravity of Brans–Dicke, Rosen, and Lightman–Lee. This study is performed without making an explicit use of the Transverse Traceless gauge of the General Relativity approach, and at the Newtonian limit. Consequently such additional polarization modes appear (non-tensorial) due to additional degrees of freedom in modified theories of gravitation. We model and compare the different polarization modes and strain signals for each scheme varying the sky location. Our analysis allows us to identify the locations where these modes are more intense, and, therefore susceptible to being identified for the future interferometer detector network. This gives rise to a framework in which the amplitude and the intensity of all polarization modes of general relativity and alternative hypotheses can be compared.
