Classification of static cylindrically symmetric space-times

  • A. Qadir
  • M. Ziad


A complete classification of static, cylindrically symmetric space-times according to their isometries and metrics (or classes of metrics) is obtained. Metrics with their Killing vectors and their Lie algebras are given explicitly.
