Vector Einstein Equations

The vector metric source evolution is similarly constructed from a ``Poisson'' equation
\dot V + 2 {\dot a \over a} V =
 -8\pi G a^2 (p_f \pi^{(1)}_f + \pi_s^{(1)})/k \, ,\end{displaymath} (58)
and the momentum conservation equation for the stress-energy tensor or Euler equation  
{rcl}\displaystyle{}\dot v_f^{(1)}&= &\dot V -...
 ...\dot a \over a} v_s^{(1)}-
 {1 \over 2}k\pi_s^{(1)},\end{array}\end{displaymath}   
where recall $c_f^2 = \dot p_f / \dot \rho_f$ is the sound speed. Again, the first of these equations remains true for each fluid individually save for momentum exchange terms. For the photons $v_\gamma^{(1)}= \Theta_1^{(1)}$ and $\pi_\gamma^{(1)}= {8 \over 5}\sqrt{3}\Theta_2^{(1)}$.Thus with the photon Euler equation (60) (with $\ell=1$, m=1), the full baryon equation becomes  
\dot v^{(1)}_B = \dot V - {\dot a \over a}
 (v^{(1)}_B - V) + {\dot\tau \over R} (\Theta_1^{(1)}- v^{(1)}_B) \, ,\end{displaymath} (59)
see Eqn. (67) for details.
