Collision of shock waves in EinsteinMaxwell theory with a cosmological constant: A special solution
Abstract
Postcollision spacetimes of the Cartesian product form M^{'}×M^{''}, where M^{'} and M^{''} are twodimensional manifolds, are known with M^{'} and M^{''} having constant curvatures of equal and opposite sign (for the collision of electromagnetic shock waves) or of the same sign (for the collision of gravitational shock waves). We construct here a new explicit postcollision solution of the EinsteinMaxwell vacuum field equations with a cosmological constant for which M^{'} has constant (nonzero) curvature and M^{''} has zero curvature.
