One useful technique for solving Einstein’s equations in four dimensions is to search for solutions that have an algebraically special Weyl tensor, a concept that can be suitably extended to higher dimensions. I will review the main results regarding algebraically special solutions in dimension greater than four, discussing in particular the five-dimensional case.
