On twisting type $[\textrm{N}] \otimes [\textrm{N}]$ Ricci flat complex spacetimes with two homothetic symmetries.

Adam Chudecki, Maciej Przanowski

$\mathcal{HH}$ spaces of type $[\textrm{N}] \otimes [\textrm{N}]$ with twisting congruence of null geodesics defined by the 4-fold undotted and dotted Penrose spinors are investigated. It is assumed that these spaces admit two homothetic symmetries. The general form of the homothetic vector fields are found. New coordinates are introduced which enable us to reduce the $\mathcal{HH}$ system of PDEs to one ODE on one holomorphic function. In a special case this is a second-order ODE and its general solution is explicitly given. In the generic case one gets rather involved fifth-order ODE.
