Inhomogeneities in Cosmological “Backgrounds” in Einstein Theory

  • Valerio Faraoni
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 907)


This chapter discusses spherical inhomogeneities embedded in FLRW cosmological “backgrounds” in Einstein theory. We introduce the topic with the Schwarzschild-de Sitter-Kottler solution and then study a generalization, the McVittie metric (including its charged version). This family of spacetimes is further generalized and a late-time attractor of this class of solutions is found. We continue by discussing the Sultana-Dyer, Husain-Martinez-Nuñez, Fonarev, and generalized Fonarev solutions.
