Exact solutions of Einstein's field equations

Author: Hans Stephani; et al
Publisher: Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2003.
Series: Cambridge monographs on mathematical physics.
Edition/Format:   Print book : English : 2nd ed
Summary:
"A revised edition of the now classic text, Exact Solutions of Einstein's Field Equations gives a unique survey of the known solutions of Einstein's field equations for vacuum, Einstein-Maxwell, pure radiation and perfect fluid sources. It starts by introducing the foundations of differential geometry and Riemannian geometry and the methods used to characterize, find or construct solutions. The solutions are then  Read more...
