Viscous fluid motion around the Kerr-Newman black hole

  • S K Saha
General Relativity


In some recent papers, it has been shown that electrovac spacetimes may sometimes be interpreted as space-time filled with a viscous fluid—one such spacetime being the Kerr-Newman metric. Here the possible fluid motion in that case is studied in some detail and some interesting features of the motion in the black hole region are pointed out.
