    • Abstract


      We present a matrix method for obtaining new classes of exact solutions for Einstein’s equations representing static perfect fluid spheres. By means of a matrix transformation, we reduce Einstein’s equations to two independent Riccati-type differential equations for which three classes of solutions are obtained. One class of the solutions corresponding to the linear barotropic-type fluid with an equation of statep =γρ is discussed in detail.
