In the context of Cosmology models, What are examples of metrics with off-diagonal terms?

  • $\begingroup$ Comment to the question (v1): Any metric tensor can via a coordinate transformation acquire off-diagonal terms. Besides this looks like a list question. $\endgroup$

Some of the Bianchi metrics have off-diagonal terms. Examples are the Taub metric and the Mixmaster metric. For more information on the Bianchi models, see Collins & Hawking (1973).

Another example is the Gödel metric.
