Killing Orbits and Isotropy in General Relativity

2013 Journal of Applied & Computational Mathematics  
This brief note is intended to show how a global and rigorous approach to certain problems regarding symmetry in general relativity theory may be given using the theory of Killing orbits and isotropy. Examples from cosmology and plane wave theory are chosen to illustrate the method. More details on these examples may be found in [1] and on the general techniques used in [2,3].
