Some pure radiation filds in general relativity

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

Abstract

A Demianski-type metric investigated in connection with Einstein's field equations corresponding to pure radiation fields. With aid of complex vectorical formalism, a general solution of these fiel equations is obtained. The solution is algebraically spcial. A particular case of the solution is considered which includes many known solutions; among them are the raiationg versions of some of Kinnersley's solutions.
