Title: Null limits of generalised Bonnor–Swaminarayan solutions
Authors: Podolsky, J.

Keywords: Accelerating particles
Cosmic strings
Impulsive spherical wave
Issue Date: 2000
Abstract: The Bonnor–Swaminarayan solutions are boost-rotation symmetric space-times which describe the motion of pairs of accelerating particles which are possibly connected to strings (struts). In an explicit and unified form we present a generalised class of such solutions with a few new observations. We then investigate the possible limits in which the accelerations become unbounded. The resulting space-times represent spherical impulsive gravitational waves with snapping or expanding cosmic strings. We also obtain an exact solution for a snapping string of finite length.
