Abstract : The memorandum obtains extensions of the previous results and applies them to a larger class of spaces described by the Einstein field equations of general relativity. The result is a system of partial differential equations involving only scalar unknowns and having certain important homogeneity properties. These properties allow the researcher to obtain a number of new solutions of the field equations that aid in understanding the implications of gravitational fields. (Author)
