##### Abstract

By an argument similar to that of Gibbons and Stewart (1984 Absence of asymptotically flat solutions of Einstein's equations which are periodic and empty near infinity Classical General Relativity (London, 1983) ed W Bonnor, J N Islam and M A H Callum (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press) pp 77–94), but in a different coordinate system and less restrictive gauge, we show that any weakly asymptotically simple, analytic vacuum or electrovacuum solutions of the Einstein equations which are periodic in time are necessarily stationary.
