Abstract [en]

In general relativity, multipole moments gives a coordinate independent description of stationary spacetimes. Although the notion of multipole moments was developed in the seventies, there are still some open questions. The major remaining problem is,whether there exist spacetimes with arbitrary a priori specified multipole moments. In this talk, this problem is studied for the axisymmetric case.A necessary and sufficient condition on the multipole moments is given for existence of a solution. Thus proving that the multipole moments completely characterise the axisymmetric stationary solutions.
