The continuing quest for exact solutions of Einstein's field eouations - - new goals for the eighties

  • Frederick J. Ernst
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 135)


The striking achievements of the last few years in connection with the search for solutions of Einstein's field equations describing the exterior fields of spinning masses give one hope that the next decade will see the solution of additional problems of physical interest.
