Degree NameResearch report
This paper extends an earlier treatment of time-dependent gravitational fields that are axially symmetric and nonrotating. From a consideration of the canonical solution of the Einstein vacuum field equations previously obtained as an axial expansion, a new method has been found that now provides the exact solution, whenever a certain generative key function x(t, z) is known.
