# Corrections and comments on the multipole moments of axisymmetric electrovacuum spacetimes

@article{Sotiriou2004CorrectionsAC, title={Corrections and comments on the multipole moments of axisymmetric electrovacuum spacetimes}, author={Thomas P. Sotiriou and Theocharis A. Apostolatos}, journal={Classical and Quantum Gravity}, year={2004}, volume={21}, pages={5727-5733} }

Following the method of Hoenselaers and Perj´ es, we present a new corrected and dimensionally consistent set of multipole gravitational and electromagnetic moments for stationary axisymmetric spacetimes. Furthermore, we use our results to compute the multipole moments, both gravitational and electromagnetic, of a Kerr–Newman black hole.
