Binary pulsars represent a good laboratory for testing field theories in
strong field regime. In such cases, the effects of non-linear terms in
these theories would be easily measured. In the present work, we discuss
an exact solution of Einstein’s field equations, in a field representing
a binary compact object. The solution is a time-dependent one, which
reduces to Curzon field, in the static case. The equations of motion of
a test particle in the above mentioned field are formulated and solved.
These equations can be used to study the motion of a third body (or a
photon) in the field of a binary system.
