On the General Solution to Einsteinís Vacuum Field and Its Implications for Relativistic Degeneracy

Authors: Stephen J. Crothers

The general solution to Einsteinís vacuum field equations for the point-mass in all its configurations must be determined in such a way as to provide a means by which an infinite sequence of particular solutions can be readily constructed. It is from such a solution that the underlying geometry of Einsteinís universe can be rightly explored. I report here on the determination of the general solution and its consequences for the theoretical basis of relativistic degeneracy, i. e. gravitational collapse and the black hole.
