A Static Solution to Einstein’s Field Equations for a Spherical Distribution of Electrically Counterpoised Dust with a Set of New Boundary Conditions

Sashinka Wimaladharma, Nalin de Silva


A static spherically symmetric solution to Einstein’s field equations has been found with the standard boundary conditions for a spherical distribution of electrically counterpoised dust in Sashinka Wimaladharma and Nalin de Silva[1]. However the solution obtained there was not Lorentzian at infinity. To overcome this problem, a set of new boundary conditions has been introduced along with different coordinates for different regions of the matter distribution.
