Abstract

Israel's method for treating surface layers is applied to determine the gravitational field due to a rotating cylindrical shell. The interior spacetime is flat while the exterior metric can be one of three types. For a given value of the stress in the cylinder, the type of the exterior metric depends on the mass per unit co-ordinate length of the cylinder.
