Some rotating, time-dependent Bianchi type-IX cosmologies with heat flow

  • Egils Sviestins
Research Articles


It is reported on an investigation of cosmologies which constitute explicit, rotating, and expanding solutions of Einstein's field equations, with spacelike, timelike, or null-like homogeneous hypersurfaces of Bianchi type IX, and the source of which is a non-thermalized perfect fluid.
