Axisymmetric stationary vacuum fields in the general scalar tensor theory

  • T. Singh
  • Tarkeshwar Singh


It is show that axisymmetric stationary vacuum solutions of the general scalar tensor theory of gravitation proposed by Nordvedt and later discussed by Barker and others can be obtained from the solutions of the axisymmetric stationary Einstein vacuum fields and also from the axisymmetric static vacuum fields of the general scalar tensor theory. The scalar tensor analogue of the Kerr solution has been obtained.
