Charged universes of the Gödel type with closed timelike curves
Classical and quantum gravity
The aim of this paper is to examine some obtained exact solutions of the Einstein-Maxwell equations, especially their properties from a chronological point of view. Each our spacetime is stationary cylindrically symmetric and it is filled up with an perfect fluid that is electrically charged. There are two classes of solutions and examples of each of them are investigated. We give examples of the first class both for the vanishing as well as for the non-vanishing Lorentz force.
