# The Schwarzschild Solution

An “easy” solution to the Einstein equation (in free space) is the spherically symmetric Schwarzschild solution. The pdf bellow shows how one can use the diffgeom module in order to get the equations describing this solution.

One starts with the most general spherically symmetrical metric and by using Einstein equation $R_{\mu \nu}=0$ deduces the equations that must be fulfilled by the components of the metric (in the chosen basis).

Nice notebook. Are you going to include it in one of your pull requests?

It should be in my latest open pull request. It is still a WIP, though, as it is not a self-contained PR.

Can you share the ipython nb, assuming that is what I am seeing? Good to see examples, especially as WIP goes.
