Domain Walls in f(R, T) Theory of Gravitation


An analysis of Bianchi type II, VIII and IX space-time in the frame work of f(R, T) theory of gravitation is presented. Domain walls are considered as a source of matter. Exact solutions of the corresponding field equations are obtained. Physical parameters of the investigated model are discussed.
