Title  Exact solutions of Einstein's field equations 
Author(s)  D. Kramer;H. Stephani;M. MacCallum;E. Hertt 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 1980. 
Description  425p. 
Series  (Cambridge Monographs on Mathematical Physics) 
Abstract Note  This book gives a unique survey of the known solutions of Einstein's field equations for vacuum, EinsteinMaxwell, pure radiation and perfect fluid sources. It introduces the foundations of differential geometry and Riemannian geometry and the methods used to characterize, find or construct solutions. The solutions are then considered, ordered by their symmetry group, their algebraic structure (Petrov type) or other invariant properties such as special subspaces or tensor fields and embedding properties. Includes all the developments in the field since the first edition and contains six completely new chapters, covering topics including generation methods and their application, colliding waves, classification of metrics by invariants and treatments of homothetic motions. This book is an important resource for graduates and researchers in relativity, theoretical physics, astrophysics and mathematics. It can also be used as an introductory text on some mathematical aspects of general relativity. 
Contents Note  Accession number 19209 is the second edition. This edition has been expanded and updated to include the new developments in the field since the publication of the first edition. It contains six completely new chapters, covering topics such as generation methods and their application, colliding waves, classification of metrics by invariants and treatments of homothetic motions.
