Gödel's metric and its generalization

Özgören, Kıvanç
In this thesis, firstly the original Gödel's metric is examined in detail. Then a more general class of Gödel-type metrics is introduced. It is shown that they are the solutions of Einstein field equations with a physically acceptable matter distribution provided that some conditions are satisfied. Lastly, some examples of the Gödel-type metrics are given.
