Abstract : Known solutions of the gravitation equations using conformal mapping contain assumptions which not only limit their generality but can also be the subject of discussion. An exact solution is obtained herein of a similar problem with a minimum of additional hypotheses. The physical consequences which here result differ substantially from the usual conception of an expanding universe. (Author)
