On the Gravitational Field of a Sphere of Incompressible Liquid, According to Einstein's Theory
This is a translation of the paper "Über das Gravitationsfeld einer Kugel aus incompressiebler Flüssigkeit nach der Einsteinschen Theorie" published by Karl Schwarzschild, in Sitzungsberichte der Königlich Preussischen Akademie der Wissenschaften, 1916, S.424-435. Here Schwarzschild expounds his previously obtained metric for the spherically symmetric gravitational ﬁeld produced by a point-mass, to the case where the source of the ﬁeld is represented by a sphere of incompressible ﬂuid. Schwarzschild formulates the physical condition of degeneration of such a ﬁeld. Translated from the German in 2008 by Larissa Borissova and Dmitri Rabounski.
