Complex windmill transformation producing new purely magnetic fluids

Lozanovski, C. and Wylleman, L. (2011) Complex windmill transformation producing new purely magnetic fluids. Classical and Quantum Gravity, 28 (7). 075015-075031. ISSN 0264-9381


Minimal complex windmill transformations of G2IB(ii) spacetimes (admitting a two-dimensional Abelian group of motions of the so-called Wainwright B(ii) class) are defined and the compatibility with a purely magnetic Weyl tensor is investigated. It is shown that the transformed spacetimes cannot be perfect fluids or purely magnetic Einstein spaces. We then determine which purely magnetic perfect fluids (PMpfs) can be windmill-transformed into purely magnetic anisotropic fluids (PMafs). Assuming separation of variables, complete integration produces two, algebraically general, G2I-B(ii) PMpfs: a solution with zero 4-acceleration vector and spatial energy–density gradient, previously found by the authors, and a new solution in terms of Kummer's functions, where these vectors are aligned and non-zero. The associated windmill PMafs are rotating but non-expanding. Finally, an attempt to relate the spacetimes to each other by a simple procedure leads to a G2I-B(ii) one-parameter PMaf generalization of the previously found metric.
