Gödel Solution  

In General > s.a. relativistic cosmological models / causality; particle models; quantum field theory in curved spacetime.
* Idea: A set of rotating cosmological solutions of Einstein's equation with pressure-free perfect fluid matter on an \(\mathbb R^4\) manifold which shattered some preconceived ideas, since the local definition of inertial frame disagrees with the global one; It violates causality and is not time-orientable.
* Remark: A generalized form, actually described originally by Gödel, is a family of metrics with isometry group SO(2,1) × SO(2) × \(\mathbb R\).
* Properties: Each spacetime has a 5-parameter group of isometries which acts transitively, and there are closed timelike curves through all points; Any two points can be joined by a timelike curve; There are no non-empty achronal sets.
* Metric: Constructed from Maurer-Cartan forms of a suitable Lie group,

ds2 = −dt2 + dx2 − \(1\over2\) exp{2\(\sqrt2\) ωx} dy2 + dz2 − 2 exp{\(\sqrt2\) ωx} dt dy (partial) ,

with fluid 4-velocity u = ∂/∂t; ω = const = magnitude of vorticity of ua, 4πρ = ω2.
