# Peres metric

Relativity and the Nature of Spacetime, Vesselin Petkov, Springer, 2009, ISBN 978-3-642-01952-4, Chapter: 7

The property of charge invariance follows from the vanishing divergence of the charge-current four-vector \( j^\mu=(c\rho,{\vec j}) \) , with \( \partial_\mu j^\mu=0. \)

In mathematical physics, the Peres metric is defined by the proper time

\( {d \tau}^{2} = dt^2 - 2f\, (t+z,\,x,\,y) (dt+dz)^2-dx^2-dy^2-dz^2 \)

for any arbitrary function f. If f is a harmonic function with respect to x and y, then the corresponding Peres metric satisfies the Einstein field equations in vacuum. Such a metric is often studied in the context of gravitational waves. The metric is named for Israeli physicist Asher Peres, who first defined the metric in 1959.
