Title: Motion of particles in the field of a naked singularity of Kasner type with complex or equal exponents

Abstract

Two exact solutions (metrics) of the gravitational equations are investigated. It is shown that one is axisymmetric and can be obtained from the Weyl metric, and that the other describes a strong gravitational wave of zero frequency in vacuum or around an infinitely long and thin naked singularity of Kasner type. This wave attracts a particle to the singularity or repels it from the singularity, depending on the sign of one of the terms of its metric. The motion of particles in the fields of the two metrics is investigated.
