Nominal source of the Kruskal metric

  • H. A. Buchdahl


Takingds2=−f (u, v)dudv+r2(u, v)dΩ2as the generic form of the metric from the out-set, a singular energy momentum tensor is determined which may formally be regarded as the source of the Kruskal metric. The result obtained is in harmony with the earlier work of Tangherlini.
