Anisotropic stars in general relativity.
In this thesis we seek new solutions to the anisotropic Einstein field equations which are important in the study of highly dense stellar structures. We first adopt the approach used by Maharaj & Maartens (1989) to obtain ...
Realistic charged stellar models
In this thesis we seek exact solutions to the isotropic Einstien-Maxwell system that model the interior of relativistic stars. The field equations are transformed to a simpler form using the transformation of Durgapal and ...
Spherically symmetric solutions in relativistic astrophysics.
In this thesis we study classes of static spherically symmetric spacetimes admitting a perfect fluid source, electromagnetic fields and anisotropic pressures. Our intention is to generate exact solutions that model the ...
