Rotating perfect fluids in general relativity

  • A. H. Khater

The field equations and the equation of motion for perfect fluids in axially-symmetric-cylindrical coordinates are presented. For rigidly rotating perfect fluid with constant pressure, exact solutions are obtained in symmetric case and axially-symmetric case as well.
