In general relativity, to understand how the spacetimes behave in presence of a given form of matter, we have to solve the Einstein field equations, which in general, are a set of 10 very complicated coupled nonlinear second order partial differential equations that describes the fundamental interaction of gravitation as a result of spacetime being curved by matter and energy. Once we solve these set of field equations we get the metric of the spacetime that describes all the general important physical features of the spacetime, for example Continue reading
