Kerr-Schild-Vaidya fields with axial symmetry
This paper contains the Kerr-Schild-Vaidya fields with axial symmetry (all metric functions independent of Vaidya's coordinateβ) in closed form. The general problem of Kerr-Schild pure radiation fields without any symmetry can be reduced to a single partial differential equation by means of Kerr's theorem.
