We consider a spherically symmetric, Petrov-type D, spacetime with hyper-surface orthogonal, radial, homothetic Killing vector. In this work, some general properties of this spacetime for non-singular and non-degenerate data are presented. We also present the source-free electromagnetic fields in this spacetime. We then discuss general astrophysical relevance of the results obtained for this spacetime.

A New General Relativistic Cosmology
In this work, we outline a new general relativistic cosmology. In this cosmology, the universe originates in the infinite past from sparsely distributed neutral matter and ends in the infinite futureExpand
What is the spacetime of {\em physically realizable} spherical collapse?
Any sufficiently sparsely distributed ordinary“neutral” matter is dusty, that is, collision-less andpressureless. Further, emission of radiation and,hence, radiation is not expected in such dust.InExpand

The Large Scale Structure of Space-Time
TLDR
The theory of the causal structure of a general space-time is developed, and is used to study black holes and to prove a number of theorems establishing the inevitability of singualarities under certain conditions. Expand
