# Generalized compact spheres in electric fields

@article{Maharaj2007GeneralizedCS, title={Generalized compact spheres in electric fields}, author={Sunil D. Maharaj and K. Komathiraj}, journal={Classical and Quantum Gravity}, year={2007}, volume={24}, pages={4513 - 4524} }

We present exact solutions to the Einstein–Maxwell system of equations in spherically symmetric gravitational fields with a specified form of the electric field intensity. The condition of pressure isotropy yields a difference equation with variable, rational coefficients. In an earlier treatment this condition was integrated by first transforming it to a hypergeometric equation. We demonstrate that it is possible to obtain a more general class of solutions to the Einstein–Maxwell system both…
