**ABSTRACT:**The energy (due to matter and fields including gravitation) of the Schwarzschild-de Sitter spacetime is investigated by using the Moller energy-momentum definition in both general relativity and teleparallel gravity. We found the same energy distribution for a given metric in both of these different gravitation theories. It is also independent of the teleparallel dimensionless coupling constant, which means that it is valid in any teleparallel model. Our results sustain that (a) the importance of the energy-momentum definitions in the evaluation of the energy distribution of a given spacetime and (b) the viewpoint of Lessner that the Moller energy-momentum complex is a powerfifi concept of energy and momentum.Foundations of Physics Letters 01/2006; 19(3).

**ABSTRACT:**To calculate the total energy distribution (due to both matter and fields including gravitation) associated with locally rotationally symmetric (LRS) Bianchi type-II space-times. We use the Bergmann-Thomson energy-momentum complex in both general relativity and teleparallel gravity. We find that the energy density in these different gravitation theories is vanishing at all times. This result is the same as that obtained by one of the present authors who solved the problem of finding the energy-momentum in LRS Bianchi type-II by using the energy-momentum complexes of Einstein and Landau and Lifshitz. The results of this paper also are consistent with those given in the previous works of Cooperstock and Israelit, Rosen, Johri et al., Banerjee-Sen, Vargas, and Salti et al. In this paper, we perform the calculations for a non-diagonal expanding space-time to determine whether the Bergmann-Thomson energy momentum prescription is consistent with the other formulations. (We previously considered diagonal and expanding space-time models.) Our result supports the viewpoints of Albrow and Tryon.Progress of Theoretical Physics 03/2006; 115(1).
