A class of new Bianchi I perfect fluid space-times


A procedure to generate new exact solutions to Einstein equations for perfect fluids is applied to LRS Bianchi type I line-element. Starting from some known solutions a class of new perfect fluid solutions of Bianchi type I are presented. The physical and kinematical properties of spatially homogeneous and anisotropic cosmological models are studied.
