VOL. 19 | 1989 Inhomogeneities in a Friedman universe


One of the outstanding problems in cosmology is the presence of inhomogeneities, which are characterized by an anisotropic pressure and density distribution. Following a method developed by McVittie (1967, 1968) it has been possible to find time-dependent spherically symmetric solutions of Einstein's field equations containing an arbitrary pressure and density distribution which connect smoothly to a Friedman universe for any desired equation of state.
