The paper considers the limiting transitions to special relativity and the Newtonian theory of gravitation in the Tolman solutions of the Einstein equations. It is shown that elliptical systems do not have an analog in the special theory. The analogs for hyperbolic and parabolic systems are the noninertial Robertson and the special-theory inertial systems, respectively. It is shown that a transition to the Newtonian theory of gravitation can be made for any type of Tolman coordinate system.
