Einstein-Maxwell field equations. Third class

  • R. S. Mishra


In this paper it has been shown that all the quantities excepting a parameter σ and charge can be determined from the field equations of general relativity, when the electromagnetic tensor field is of the third class. The parameter σ and the charge can be determined from Maxwell equations. The electromagnetic tensor, stress tensor, pressure, mass and charge have been obtained as concomitants of gravitational tensorh λμ.
