Spherical Anisotropic Fluid Distribution in General Relativity
ABSTRACT
In the present investigation of a spherically symmetric electrically neutral anisotropic static fluid, we present a new solution of the Einstein’s general relativistic field equations. The solution shows positive finite central pressures, central density and central red shift. The causality condition is obeyed at the centre. The anisotropy parameter is zero at the center and monotonically increasing toward the surface. The adiabatic index is also increasing towards the surface. All the other physical quantities such as matter-energy density, radial pressure, tangential pressure, velocity of sound and red shift are monotonically decreasing towards the surface. Further by assuming the surface density , we have constructed a model of massive neutron star with mass 2.95 with radius 18 km with all degree of suitability.

1. Introduction

A compact stellar object is formed by an equilibrium state which is reached after condensation and contraction of a massive gas cloud. At this state thermal radiation pressure together with normal fluid pressure balances the gravitational binding energy. Various studies are made for understanding the formation of compact star, its physical properties and internal structure by the solution of Einstein’s field equation. Therefore the static isotropic and anisotropic exact solution which describes the compact star is caused to enthusiasts the Researchers to conduct the work in the same field. The study of interior of massive fluid ball can be made by well behaved solution of Einstein’s field equation. These equations were solved by Schwarzschild for the interior of the static compact stellar object. The first ever two exact solution of Einstein field equation for a compact object in static equilibrium was obtained by Schwarzschild [1] in 1916. The first solution corresponds to the geometry of the space-time exterior to a static perfect fluid ball, while the other solution describes the interior geometry of a fluid sphere of constant energy-density. Tolman [2] has obtained eight different types of exact solu- tions for static cases. The III solution corresponds to the constant density solution obtained earlier by Schwarzschild. The V and VI solutions correspond to infinite density and infinite pressure at the centre, hence not considered physically viable. Thus only the IV and VII solutions of Tolman are of physical relevance. Despite the non linear character of Einsteins field equations, various exact solutions for static and spherically symmetric metric are available in the related literature.

The search for the exact solutions is of continuous interest to researcher. Buchdahl [3] proposed a famous bound on the mass radius ratio of relativistic fluid spheres which is an important contribution in order to study the stability of the fluid spheres. Delgaty- Lake [4] studied all the then existing solutions and established that Adler [5] , Heintzmann [6] , Finch and Skea [7] , etc. do not satisfy all the well behaved conditions and also pointed out that only nine solutions are well behaved; out of which seven in curvature coordinates (Tolman, Patwardhan and Vaidya [8] , Mehra [9] , Kuchowicz [10] , Matese and Whitman [11] , Durgapals two solutions [12] ) and only two solutions (Nariai [13] , Goldman [14] ) in isotropic coordinates. Ivanov [15] [16] , Pant [17] , Maurya and Gupta [18] , Pant et al. [19] [20] studied the existing well behaved solutions of Einstein field equations in isotropic coordinates. Recently we have found some exact solutions of Einsteins field equations for anisotropic fluid given by Herrera et al. [21] [22] , Komathiraj and Maharaj [23] , Thirukkanesh and Regel [24] , Sunzu et al. [25] , Chaisi and Maharaj [26] , Maurya and Gupta [27] , Gupta and Maurya [28] . Some pioneer work in Relativity is given by Fuloria et al. [29] , Whitman and Burch [30] , Bonner and Vickers [31] , Pant and Negi [32] , Herrera and Santo [33] Tikekar [34] , Gupta and Kumar [35] , Herrera et al.

In this paper we present a new solution in spherically symmetric canonical coordinates which is well behaved. We present a new general solution of Einstein Field Equations and its detailed study, in order to construct a realistic model of compact star. In our present study the paper consists of eight sections. In Section 2 Einstein’s field equations in canonical coordinates are given. Expressions of density, anisotropic pressures( radial and transverse pressures), anisotropy parameter and redshift are incorporated in this section. Section 3 consists of boundary conditions for well behaved solutions. A new class of general well behaved solution of Einstein’s field equations in canonical coordinates is given in Section 4. This section also includes a particular

solution for for constructing a new realistic model for compact star. Section 5

stipulates the properties of this new class of solution of Einstein’s field equations. In Section 6 the matching conditions of interior metric of the fluid with the Schwarzschild exterior metric are given. For better illustration of our physically accepted solutions, the relevant physical quantities are presented by means of tables and figures in Section 7. Finally, some concluding remarks have been made in Section 8.

2. Einstein’s Field Equation in Canonical Coordinates

The Einstein’s field equations of general relativity are

(1)

where, the energy momentum tensor for a anisotropic fluid ball is defined as

where is the proper density, and are pressures of the fluid in the direction of (radial pressure)and orthogonal to (tangential pressure) respectively, time-like four-velocity vector, is the unit space like vector in the direction of radial vector and metric tensor of space-time.

The interior space-time metric for spherically symmetric fluid distribution is given by

3. Boundary Conditions for Well Behaved Solution

For well behaved nature of the solution in isotropic coordinates, the following conditions should be satisfied (Bonnor-Vickers [31] ):

(i) The solution should be free from geometrical and physical singularities. Metric potentials A and B must be non-zero positive finite for free from geometrical singularities while central pressure, central density, should be positive and finite or and for free from physical singularities.

(ii) The solution should have maximum positive values of pressure and density at the center and monotonically decreasing towards the surface of fluid object i.e.

(a) and such that the radial pressure gradient, is negative for.

(b) and such that the tangential pressure gradient, is negative for.

(c) and such that the density gradient, is negative for.

(iii) The radial pressure must be equal to the tangential pressure at the center i.e..

(iv) At boundary radial pressure, must vanish while tangential pressure, may not vanish.

(v) The radial pressure, , tangential pressure, and density should be positive.

(vi) Solution should have positive value of pressure-density ratio which must be less than 1 (weak energy condition) and less than (strong energy condition) throughout

within the fluid object and monotonically decreasing as well. (Pant and Negi [32] ).

(vii) The condition that the velocity of sound should be less than that of light throughout the model must be satisfied i.e. and. The velocity of sound should be monotonically decreasing towards the surface and increasing with the increase of density i.e. or and or. In this context it is worth mentioning that the equation

of state at ultra-high distribution has the property that the sound speed is decreasing outwards.

(viii) The anisotropy factor should be zero at the center and incresing towards the surface of fluid object.

(ix) For realistic matter, adiabatic index, everywhere within the ball.

(x) The red shift should be positive finite everywhere within and on the fluid sphere, and is monotonically decreasing in nature with the increase of radius from the center.

(xi) The stability factor should lie between and throughout the ball.

Under these conditions, we have to assume the one of the gravitational potential component in such a way that the field Equation (1) can be integrated and solution should be well behaved.

Thus a compact star model can be constructed by finding mass and radius corresponding to assumed surface density. The variation in the mass and radius with Schwarzschild parameters for our model of compact star is tabulated in the Table 3.

8. Conclusion

We have given a new solution for spherically symmetric anisotropic fluid ball. It has been observed that the physical parameters pressure, density, and redshift are positive at the centre and within the limit of realistic state equation and monotonically decreasing and the causality condition is obeyed throughout the fluid ball. Thus, the solution is well behaved for all values of Schwarzschild parameter within the perfect fluid ball. Our solution is useful to construct the models of compact star like Strange star family, Neutron star and many more. We have discussed a model of massive neutron star having mass and radius 18 km with surface density and central density. The central radial and tangential pressures of neutron star are while the surface radial pressure of the star is zero and surface tangential pressure is. Table 1 shows that we can construct different models for neutron star having mass lies between and for different values of ranging from 0.143 to 0.245. The solution reduces to Schwarzschild interior solution for and for isotropic pressure.
