Abstract

WE have recently found the most general non-static solution of spherical symmetry satisfying the relativistic equations of electromagnetism, namely, in the usual notation1. The line element is The surviving components of the tensor Tµν are four: Both Ï and ƒ(m) are arbitrary. We note that m is conserved along a line of flow.
