Schwarzschild and Kerr Solutions of Einstein's Field Equation: an introduction
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 96

Description:
Starting from Newton's gravitational theory, we give a general introduction into the spherically symmetric solution of Einstein's vacuum field equation, the Schwarzschild(-Droste) solution, and into one specific stationary axially symmetric solution, the Kerr solution.
