spherically symmetric metric used to write in he following form:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

ds^2 = -h(r,t}^2 * dt^2 + f(r,t)^2 * dr^2 + r^2 * d_omega^2

But what about the form

ds^2 = -f(r,t}^2 * dt^2 + f(r,t)^(-1) * dr^2 + r^2 * d_omega^2

and

ds^2 = -f(r}^2 * dt^2 + f(r)^(-1) * dr^2 + r^2 * d_omega^2

how can we interpret these forms?

This is the general spherically symmetric vacuum solution, or what?
