Symbolic computation and perfect fluids in general relativity
thesisposted on 1999-01-01, 00:00 authored by Sasha O'Donnell. Cyganowski
Focuses on two areas within the field of general relativity. Firstly, the history and implications of the long-standing conjecture that general relativistic, shear-free perfect fluids which obey a barotropic equation of state p = p(w) such that w + p = 0, are either non-expanding or non-rotating. Secondly the application of the computer algebra system Maple to the area of tetrad formalisms in general relativity.
