A rotating homogeneous universe with an electromagnetic field.
Abstract
The field equations of general relativity are solved to describe a gravitational field due to a rotating homogeneous fluid in the presence of a Maxwellian sourcefree electromagnetic field. It turns out that the metric to describe this field is the wellknown RobertsonWalker metric with positive spacetime curvature or its particular case, the metric of the closed Einstein universe.
