Abstract

A number of explicit, rotating and expanding cosmological solutions of the Einstein field equations are presented. They have homogeneous hypersurfaces of Bianchi type VIII, and they are locally rotationally symmetric. The source is a perfect fluid with heat flow. The thermodynamic properties of the models are discussed.
