General vacuum solution for Brans-Dicke-Bianchi type-II

Letter to the editor

  • 39 Accesses


In this paper we have obtained the general vacuum solution for Bianchi type-II in the Brans-Dicke theory for total anistropyR 1R 2R 3. It is known that by use of our method, we can find the general solution for Bianchi type-II vacuum case in the general relativity theory, first given by Taub (1951). Some physical properties of this model are also discussed.
