A plane wave solution with a source admitting a null homothety

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

A metric is discussed which admits minimal plane isometry group along with a null homothetic vector field. The metric has a line singularity and turns out to be of Petrov type D. A special case of the metric admits a seven dimensional homothety group and is known to represent a special plane wave solution.
