Radiating Demianski-type metrics and the Einstein-Maxwell fields

  • L. K. Patel (a1), R. P. Akabari (a1) and U. K. Dave (a2)

Abstract

A Demianski-type metric is investigated in connection with the Einstein-Maxwell fields. Using complex vectorial formalism, some exact solutions of Einstein-Maxwell field equations for source-free electromagnetic fields plus pure radiation fields are obtained. The radiating Demianski solution, the Debney-Kerr-Schild solution and the Brill solution are derived as particular cases.
