    • Abstract


      In addition to the Kerr-Newman metric with cosmological constant several other metrics are presented giving Kerr-Newman type solutions of Einstein-Maxwell field equations in the background of deSitter universe. The electromagnetic field in all the solutions is assumed to be source-free. A new metric of what may be termed as an electrovac rotating de-Sitter space-time—a space-time devoid of matter but containing source-free electromagnetic field and a null fluid with twisting rays—has been presented. In the absence of the electromagnetic field, our solutions reduce to those discussed by Vaidya.
