A spinning string
The Einstein-Cartan field equations are solved for a string source with spin-polarisation along the axis of symmetry. The interior solution is matched to an exterior vacuum space-time using Arkuszewski-Kopczynski-Ponomariev junction conditions. The exterior solution is a four-dimensional extension of the space-time outside a spinning point particle in three dimensional Einstein theory. It reduces to the geometry outside a conventional straight cosmic string in the case of vanishing spin.
