Before I begin, I stress that this is NOT a homework question but rather a self-study question.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In any case, I calculated the Einstein Tensor of a body with the metric diag[{2GM/r-1,0,0,0},{0,1+2GM/r,0,0},{0,0,1+2GM/r,0},{0,0,0,1+2GM/r}]. What does the Einstein Tensor represent? Does its determinant/trace/or matrix operations have any physical meaning?
