The Einstein-Rosen gravitational waves and cosmology

Part I. Invited Papers Dedicated To Nathan Rosen

Abstract

This paper reviews recent applications of the Einstein-Rosen type space-times to some problems of modern cosmology. An extensive overview of inhomogeneous universes filled with gravitational waves, classical fields, and relativistic fluids is given. The dynamics of primordial inhomogeneities, such as gravitational and matter waves and shocks, their interactions, and the global evolution of the models considered, is presented in detail.
