The energy–momentum tensor in general relativity contains only localized contributions to the total energy–momentum. Here, we consider a static, spherically symmetric object consisting of a charged perfect fluid. For this object, the total gravitational mass contains a non-localizable contribution of electric coupling (ordinarily associated with electromagnetic mass). We derive an explicit expression for the total mass which implies that the non-localizable contribution of electric coupling is… 
Binding in Charged Spherically Symmetric Objects
We consider the subject of self-binding in static, spherically symmetric objects consisting of a charged fluid. We have shown previously that in the case of a perfect fluid, only the localized part
Gravitational binding energy in charged cylindrical symmetry
We consider a static, cylindrically symmetric, charged, gravitating object as a perfect fluid and investigate the gravitational binding energy. It is found that only the localized part of the mass
Electromagnetic effects on the stability of anisotropic cylinder
This paper is devoted to analyzing the stability of charged anisotropic cylinder using the radial perturbation scheme. For this purpose, we consider the non-static cylindrically symmetric self-grav...


The mass of a static charged sphere
The field of a static, charged sphere is investigated using general relativity. InNordström's exterior solution the parametersm ande, referring to mass and charge, are unrelated, and indeedm can be

The Einstein-Maxwell field equations of general relativity are used to construct a Lorentz model of an electron as an extended body consisting of pure charge and no matter and the mass of the electron is associated with its Schwarzschild gravitational mass.
Charged fluid sphere in general relativity
An analytic solution of the relativistic field equations is obtained for a static, spherically symmetric distribution of charged fluid. The arbitrary constants are determined by matching it with the
Electromagnetic mass models in general relativity
The metric coefficients g/sub 00/ and g/sub 11/ of both the Schwarzschild and Reissner-Nordstroem metrics satisfy the relation g/sub 00/g/sub 11/ = -1. A coordinate-independent statement of this

It is pointed out that the electron model of Lopez, which includes spin, and which is a source of the Kerr-Newman field, gives rise to repulsive gravitation.
Charged fluid sphere in general relativity
In this paper a solution for the interior metric of a uniformly charged static fluid sphere has been obtained. The model sphere obtained has a physically reasonable equation of state. It is found
A singularity-free solution for a charged fluid sphere in general relativity
A singularity-free solution was obtained for a static charged fluid sphere in general relativity. The solution satisfies physical conditions inside the sphere.
Charged Static Fluid Spheres in General Relativity
The work is concerned with the charged analogue of Bayin's paper (1978) related to Tolman's type astrophysically interesting aspects of stellar structure.
