Gravitational Radiation
IN recent years there has been a good deal of controversy about gravitational radiation. Historically, the position is as follows. It was shown quite soon after the publication of the general theoryExpand

The rigidly rotating relativistic dust cylinder
The solution of van Stockum (1937) consists of a rotating dust interior, and three exterior metrics referring to different ranges of the mass per unit length. It has been stated in the literatureExpand

Spherically symmetric radiation of charge in Einstein-Maxwell theory
We give solutions of the Einstein-Maxwell equations describing the emission of charged null fluid from a spherically symmetric body. The electromagnetic field is parallel to the direction of energyExpand

The photon rocket
There is an exact solution of Einstein's equations corresponding to a particle emitting null fluid anisotropically, and accelerating because of the recoil. I examine this solution and find no sign ofExpand

Physical interpretation of vacuum solutions of Einstein's equations. Part I. Time-independent solutions
This article is a review of interpretations which have been given to some well known solutions of the vacuum equations. Special attention is paid to those of Schwarzschild, Curzon and Kerr, and it isExpand

The gravitational field of light
I obtain an exact solution of Einstein's equations representing the gravitational field of a steady beam of light. Another exact solution representing two parallel beams shining in the same sense isExpand

A new interpretation of the NUT metric in general relativity
The NUT metric is interpreted as the field of ( a ) a mass around the origin of coordinates, and ( b ) a semi-infinite massless source of angular momentum.
