We present an exact solution of the Einstein empty-space equations referring to four particles in relative motion. The particles move with different uniform accelerations relative to a co-ordinate system which is Minkowskian at infinity, except in certain directions. If positive and negative masses are allowed, the particles can move freely under their own gravitation; if all four masses are positive, stresses extending to infinity are needed to cause the motion, but two of the particles can… Expand
An exact solution of Einstein's equations for two particles falling freely in an external gravitational field
I begin with a Weyl axially symmetric, static metric representing a spherical particle in equilibrium under the attraction of a semi-infinite rod (s.i.r.) of line density 1/2 and another,Expand
An exact solution for uniformly accelerated particles in general relativity
Recently an exact solution of Einstein's empty-space equations referring to four uniformly accelerated particles was given. The relation of this to static axially symmetric metrics of the Weyl andExpand

We discuss the Newtonian limit of boost-rotation symmetric space-times by means of the Ehlers frame theory. Conditions for the existence of such a limit are given and, in particular, we show thatExpand
Exact impulsive gravitational waves in space-times of constant curvature
Exact solutions exist which describe impulsive gravitational waves propagating in Minkowski, de Sitter, or anti-de Sitter universes. These may be either nonexpanding or expanding. Both cases in eachExpand
Negative mass in general relativity
Mechanics is considered in a universe containing negative mass. Demanding (i) conservation of momentum, (ii) principle of equivalence, (iii) no runaway motions, (iv) no Schwarzschild black holes, andExpand
Asymptotic directional structure of radiative fields in spacetimes with a cosmological constant
We analyse the directional properties of general gravitational, electromagnetic and spin-s fields near conformal infinity . The fields are evaluated in normalized tetrads which are parallellyExpand

A device making use of the linearity of one of the field equations for Rosen’s cylindrically symmetric metric is employed to demonstrate a correspondence between some outgoing toroidal gravitationalExpand
Selected Solutions of Einstein’s Field Equations: Their Role in General Relativity and Astrophysics
The primary purpose of all physical theory is rooted in reality, and most relativists pretend to be physicists. We may often be members of departments of mathematics and our work oriented towards theExpand
Radiation from accelerated black holes in an anti–de Sitter universe
Radiative properties of gravitational and electromagnetic fields generated by uniformly accelerated charged black holes in asymptotically de Sitter spacetime are studied by analyzing the C-metricExpand
Numerical Study of the Interaction Between Positive and Negative Mass Objects in General Relativity
Based on Baumgarte–Shapiro–Shibata–Nakamura formalism and moving puncture method, we demonstrate the first numerical evolutions of the interaction between positive and negative mass objects. UsingExpand
