Energy Momentum Tensor for Photonic System

Authors(1) :-Rampada Misra

Different expressions for energy momentum tensor in Cartesian co-ordinates under different conditions have been obtained by taking into consideration the transformation of co-ordinates from a photonic system. In doing so, the fundamental tensor, the Christofell’s three index symbol, the Riemann-Christofell curvature tensor , scalar curvature have been calculated which leads to the expression of the energy-momentum tensor. The clue for transforming the main expression to those under different conditions has been mentioned in this work.
