I think this will be a quick question...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If the Schw's metric is a solution of the vacuum, then what does the mass [itex]M_0[/itex] in the metric correspond to? I thought it was the mass of the star.... but if that's true then why is it a vacuum solution?

Or is it vacuum because it describes the regions outside the star of radius [itex]R_{0}[/itex]([itex]r>R_{0},~~ M_0 \equiv M(R_{0}) [/itex]) ?
