Abstract

This is the second paper giving a simple application of the Newman-Penrose formalism to be used by those learning this theory. Here we solve the spherically symmetric Einstein-Maxwell problem for the Reissner-Nordstrøm solution using the Newman-Penrose formalism. As in our previous example the calculation is carried out using a Minkowski null tetrad.
