A spatially homogeneous gravitational field

  • V. Joseph (a1)

A solution of Einstein's vacuum field equations, apparently new, is exhibited. The metric, which is homogeneous (that is, admits a three-parameter group of motions transitive on space-like hypersurfaces), belongs to Taub Type V. The canonical form of the Riemann tensor, which is of Petrov Type I, is determined.
