Abstract

A new solution of the Einstein-neutrino field equations is given. This solution is of Plebanski class [4n]3 and describes a beam of neutrinos propagating along straight geodesies but possessing an inherent angular momentum density. Another previously known solution is also examined, and using some calculations given by Bonnor it is concluded that a uniform beam of neutrinos is gravitationally stable and that two such beams radiating in the same sense do not interact.
