Curved spaces admiting solutions to twistor equations

Abstract:

This thesis comprises three sections. In the first, real space-times admitting a solution to the two-index twistor (Killing spinor) equation are constructed and the separability properties of solutions to zero rest-mass field equations within these space-times are derived. In addition conditions for differential relations between components of opposite helicity are derived.

In the second section class of half algebraically-special spaces is investigated, a class which may be charact...
