**Schwarzschild and Kerr Solutions of Einstein's Field Equation: an introduction**

by Christian Heinicke, Friedrich W. Hehl

**Publisher**: arXiv 2015**Number of pages**: 96

**Description**:

Starting from Newton's gravitational theory, we give a general introduction into the spherically symmetric solution of Einstein's vacuum field equation, the Schwarzschild(-Droste) solution, and into one specific stationary axially symmetric solution, the Kerr solution.
