On the theorems of Levine and Zund
- 29 Downloads
Some results of Levine and Zund are extended and applied to Maxwell's theory. It is deduced that a null Maxwell field in a conformally flat space-time is necessarily expansion free and twistfree as well as shearfree. An analogous result is given for null Maxwell fields which are type N in the Petrov classification.
