Axially symmetric solutions in general scalar-tensor theory

  • S. Chatterjee
  • A. Banerjee


We generalise Ernst's derivation of the axially symmetric solutions of Einstein's field equations to the general scalar-tensor theory proposed by Nordtvedt. The solution of the Nordtvedt theory differs by a conformai transformation from the Brans-Dicke solution. The Kerr-like solution of the Nordtvedt theory is obtained as an example.
