Taking into account the previous equations, the first tensor equation of rheological model (3) leads to the following expressions, which determine the values of shear components of stress tensor:
The particle quantities like mass, spin, charge, magnetic momentum are integration constants from mentioned tensor equations, and are inserted as parameters into the initial conditions.
Using these in the three Einstein tensor equations with the diagonal indices 11, 22, 33, we obtain formulae for [U.
