# Decoupling gravitational sources in general relativity: from perfect to anisotropic fluids

@article{Ovalle2017DecouplingGS, title={Decoupling gravitational sources in general relativity: from perfect to anisotropic fluids}, author={Jorge Ovalle}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2017}, volume={95}, pages={104019} }

We show the first simple, systematic and direct approach to decoupling gravitational sources in general relativity. As a direct application, a robust and simple way to generate anisotropic solutions for self-gravitating systems from perfect fluid solutions is presented.
