Axially symmetric stationary solutions of EinsteinMaxwell equations
Abstract
A scheme is presented by which we can obtain static electrovac exterior solutions from the stationary gravitational fields given by Kerr and Tomimatsu and Sato. A fiveparameter solution of the combined EinsteinMaxwell equations is given that describes a source containing mass, electric charge, magnetic dipole, higher multipole moments of all three kinds and angular momentum. These are generated by using Kinnersley's method from Wang's electrovac solutions, which, in turn, were generated from the gravitational fields of Tomimatsu and Sato for δ=2 3. All the solutions are asymptotically flat.
