Affine collineations in Robertson-Walker space-time
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article › peer-review
In a recent paper [M. L. Bedran and B. Lesche, J. Math. Phys. 27, 2360 (1986)], an attempt was made to find an affine collineation in Robertson-Walker space-time. However, only a homothetic affine collineation was found, in the case of a linear scale factor, R(t)∼t. It is pointed out that another homothetic affine collineation exists when R(t)∼tb, and a proper (nonhomothetic) affine collineation in the Einstein static space-times has been found.
