Electromagnetic field and dynamics of tilted Lemaitre-Tolman-Bondi spacetimes


In this paper, we investigate the dynamics of Lemaitre-Tolman-Bondi spacetimes with imperfect fluid in the presence of electromagnetic field. We study the effects of charge with respect to an observer moving radially relative to the fluid, that is, a tilted observer. The relationship between various quantities in the tilted and non-tilted congruences is developed using the Einstein-Maxwell field equations. We explore various factors affecting the inhomogeneities in the energy density of the fluid and also discuss the stability of the non-tilted congruence.
