On Lanczos Potential for Spherically Symmetric Spacetimes


Ravi Panchal, A. C. Patel and A. H. Hasmani


By taking particular choice of unit timelike velocity vector, Lanczos potential for non-vacuum and non-static general spherically symmetric spacetime has
been obtained. The results thus obtained are applied to some particular spherical symmetric spacetimes and a linear relationship between Lanczos scalars and spin coefficients has been obtained for these spacetimes.
