Shouldn't it be Einsten-Maxwell theory instead of Einstein field equations? Equivalently, the space is not empty (besides the black hole itself) as there is a non-trivial electric field. FMeul (talk) 12:19, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

When talking about the metric the constants are usually set to 1 for clarity, maybe a good idea to do that here? Also the r_Q seems unnecessary if in natural units. By the dr^2 comment would be better to put the metric component as g_00 ^-1 instead of 1/g_00 Jamescook.106 (talk) 13:02, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Furthermore would be a good idea to put the penrose diagram for this solution, and the section with the Einstein Field equations seems unnecessary Jamescook.106 (talk) 13:03, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Redirect[edit]

Should Reissner–Nordström solution redirect here? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.247.167.104 (talk) 04:12, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

And now it does. It used to be empty, so its a harmless redirect.67.198.37.16 (talk) 11:07, 14 March 2016 (UTC)
