We show that for the fields depending on only two of the four space-time coordinates, the spaces of local solutions of various integrable reductions of Einstein’s field equations are the subspaces of the spaces of local solutions of the “null-curvature” equations selected by universal (i.e., solution-independent conditions imposed on the canonical (Jordan) forms of the desired matrix variables. Each of these spaces of solutions can be parameterized by a finite set of holomorphic functions of… 

Integrable structures and the quantization of free null initial data for gravity

Variables for constraint free null canonical vacuum general relativity are presented which have simple Poisson brackets that facilitate quantization. Free initial data for vacuum general relativity

Thirty years of studies of integrable reductions of Einstein's field equations

More than thirty years passed since the first discoveries of various aspects of integrability of the symmetry reduced vacuum Einstein equations and electrovacuum Einstein - Maxwell equations were

Weyl-Eddington-Einstein affine gravity in the context of modern cosmology

We propose new models of the “affine” theory of gravity in multidimensional space-times with symmetric connections. We use and develop ideas of Weyl, Eddington, and Einstein, in particular,

Nonlinear Perturbations and Conservation Laws on Curved Backgrounds in GR and Other Metric Theories

The field-theoretical approach is reviewed. Perturbations in general relativity as well as in an arbitrary $D$-dimensional metric theory are studied on a background, which is a solution (arbitrary)

Dimensional reduction of gravity and relation between static states, cosmologies, and waves

We introduce generalized dimensional reductions of an integrable (1+1)-dimensional dilaton gravity coupled to matter down to one-dimensional static states (black holes in particular), cosmological

Multiexponential models of (1+1)-dimensional dilaton gravity and Toda-Liouville integrable models

We study general properties of a class of two-dimensional dilaton gravity (DG) theories with potentials containing several exponential terms. We isolate and thoroughly study a subclass of such


After a brief discussion of dimensional reductions leading to the 1+1 dimensional dilaton gravity theory we consider general properties of these theories and identify problems that arise in its

Inverse scattering method and soliton double solution family for the general symplectic gravity model

A previously established Hauser–Ernst-type extended double-complex linear system is slightly modified and used to develop an inverse scattering method for the stationary axisymmetric general

The Asymptotic Safety Scenario in Quantum Gravity

Criteria for a continuum limit are formulated and the notion of a background geometry self-consistently determined by the quantum dynamics is presented and self-contained appendices provide prerequisites on the background effective action, the effective average action, and their respective renormalization flows.

Monodromy Transform Approach to Solution of Some Field Equations in General Relativity and String Theory

A monodromy transform approach, presented in this communication, provides a general base for solution of space-time symmetry reductions of Einstein equations in all known integrable cases, which

Integrability of Generalized (Matrix) Ernst Equations in String Theory

We elucidate the integrability structures of the matrix generalizations of the Ernst equation for Hermitian or complex symmetric (d×d)-matrix Ernst potentials. These equations arise in string theory

Exact Solutions of Einstein's Field Equations

We examine various well known exact solutions available in the literature to investigate the recent criterion obtained in Negi and Durgapal [Gravitation and Cosmology7, 37 (2001)] which should be

A homogeneous Hilbert (Riemann) problem (HHP) is introduced for carrying out the Kinnersley–Chitre transformations of the set V of all axially symmetric stationary vacuum spacetimes, and the

The Einstein equations for stationary axially symmetric gravitational fields are written in several extremely simple forms. Using a tensor generalization of the Ernst potential, we give forms that

Hidden symmetry group of the four-dimensional EMDA theory, unifying T and S string dualities, is shown to be Sp(2, R) acting transitively on the coset Sp( 2, R)/U(2), and two-parameter Abelian space-time isometry group, the hidden symmetry is the corresponding infinite-dimensional groups of the Geroch-Kinnersley-Chitre type.

Backlund transformations of axially symmetric stationary gravitational fields

A generation theorem for solutions of Einstein's equations is presented. It consists mainly of algebraic steps. With its aid, one obtained from an 'old' solution (e.g. from the Minkowski space) 'new'
