Using the Kerr--Schild decomposition of the metric tensor that employs the algebraically special nature of the Kerr--Newman spacetime family, we calculate the energy--momentum tensor. The latter turns out to be a well defined tensor distribution with disc-like support. 
Distributional energy - momentum tensor of the extended Kerr geometry
We generalize previous work on the energy - momentum tensor distribution of the Kerr geometry by extending the manifold structure into the negative mass region. Since the extension of the flat part
Boosting the Kerr geometry in an arbitrary direction
We construct ultrarelativistic Kerr geometries from their distributional energy - momentum tensors. The latter are obtained by boosting Kerr's distributional energy - momentum tensor in arbitrary
Generalized Kerr-Schild metrics and the gravitational field of a massless particle on the horizon
We investigate the structure of the gravitational field generated by a massless particle moving on the horizon of an arbitrary (stationary) black hole. This is done by employing the generalized
Static Spherically Symmetric Kerr-Schild Metrics and Implications for the Classical Double Copy
We discuss the physical interpretation of stress-energy tensors that source static spherically symmetric Kerr-Schild metrics. We find that the sources of such metrics with no curvature singularities
Distributional Schwarzschild Geometry from Non Smooth Regularization Via Horizon
In this paper we leave the neighborhood of the singularity at the origin and turn to the singularity at the horizon.Using nonlinear distributional geometry and Colombeau generalized functions it
Remarks on the distributional Schwarzschild geometry
This work is devoted to a mathematical analysis of the distributional Schwarzschild geometry. The Schwarzschild solution is extended to include the singularity; the energy momentum tensor becomes a
The gravitational field of a point charge and finiteness of self-energy
Singularities in the metric of classical solutions of the Einstein equations (the Schwarzschild, Kerr, Reissner-Nordstroem, and Kerr-Newman solutions) give rise to generalized functions in the
Metric for a rotating object in an infrared corrected nonlocal gravity model
Here, we derive the metric for the spacetime around rotating object for the gravity action having nonlocal correction of $R\Box^{-2} R $ to the Einstein-Hilbert action. Starting with the generic
Distributional curvature of time dependent cosmic strings
Colombeau's theory of generalized functions is used to calculate the contributions, at the rotation axis, to the distributional curvature for a time-dependent radiating cosmic string, and hence the

In this paper we leave the neighborhood of the singularity at the origin and turn to the singularity at the horizon. Using nonlinear superdistributional geometry and supergeneralized functions it


The energy-momentum tensor of a black hole, or what curves the Schwarzschild geometry?
Using distributional techniques we calculate the energy-momentum tensor of the Schwarzschild geometry. It turns out to be a well defined tensor distribution concentrated on the r=0 region which is
On the gravitational field of a massless particle
The gravitational field of a massless point particle is first calculated using the linearized field equations. The result is identical with the exact solution, obtained from the Schwarzschild metric
Maximal Analytic Extension of the Kerr Metric
Kruskal's transformation of the Schwarzschild metric is generalized to apply to the stationary, axially symmetric vacuum solution of Kerr, and is used to construct a maximal analytic extension of the
Note on the Kerr Spinning‐Particle Metric
It is shown that by means of a complex coordinate transformation performed on the monopole or Schwarzschild metric one obtains a new metric (first discovered by Kerr). It has been suggested that this
Solutions of the Einstein and Einstein‐Maxwell Equations
Algebraically degenerate solutions of the Einstein and Einstein‐Maxwell equations are studied. Explicit solutions are obtained which contain two arbitrary functions of a complex variable, one
The Large Scale Structure of Space-Time
The theory of the causal structure of a general space-time is developed, and is used to study black holes and to prove a number of theorems establishing the inevitability of singualarities under certain conditions.
