Abstract
It is shown how two different but related potentials arise for stiff f luids in space-times with two commuting space-like Killing vectors. Th is is applied to the generation of stiff fluid or scalar field solutio ns from vacuum solutions in the colliding plane wave problem, and it i s indicated how large families of new solutions can be obtained.
