Spherically symmetric solution and a satisfactory energy-momentum complex

Mikhail et al. obtained two spherically symmetric solutions in Møller tetrad theory of gravitation. They calculated their energy content and obtained a strange value for the second solution, in spite that the associated metric of these solutions is the same (the Schwarzschild metric). We use another method given by Gibbons and Hawking to calculate the energy content of these solutions. We also obtained a strange value of energy for the second solution! Studying the requirements of the satisfactory energy-momentum complex given by Møller we find that the second solution which behaves as 1/√r does not transform as a four-vector under Lorentz transformation. © Società Italiana di Fisica.
