    • Abstract


      A nonstatic and circularly symmetric exact solution of the Einstein equations (with a cosmological constant Λ and null fluid) in 2 + 1 dimensions is given. This is a nonstatic generalization of the uncharged spinless BTZ metric. For Λ = 0, the spacetime is though not flat, the Kretschmann invariant vanishes. The energy, momentum, and power output for this metric are obtained. Further a static and circularly symmetric exact solution of the Einsteinmassless scalar equations is given, which has a curvature singularity atr = 0 and the scalar field diverges atr = 0 as well as at infinity.
