The Kerr family of solutions of the Einstein and Einstein-Maxwell equations is the most general class of solutions known at present which could represent the field of a rotating neutral or electrically charged body in asymptotically flat space. When the charge and specific angular momentum are small compared with the mass, the part of the manifold which is stationary in the strict sense is incomplete at a Killing horizon. Analytically extended manifolds are constructed in order to remove this… 
GRAVITATIONAL FIELD AND ELECTRIC FORCE LINES OF A NEW 2-SOLITON SOLUTION
A new exact solution of the coupled Einstein–Maxwell equations is given and studied. It is found using the soliton method, adding one soliton to the Schwarzschild background. The solution is
ON THE STATIC SPACETIME OF A SINGLE POINT CHARGE
Among all electromagnetic theories which (a) are derivable from a Lagrangian, (b) satisfy the dominant energy condition, and (c) in the weak field limit coincide with classical linear
Emergence of the Dirac equation in the solitonic source of the Kerr spinning particle
The gravitational and electromagnetic (EM) fields of the Dirac electron are described by the Kerr-Newman (KN) solution. We elaborate a regular source of the KN solution which satisfies the
The determination of the parameters of “spherical” motion in a kerr field
The problem of the existence of class M geodesic motions on the surface r=const, all of whose mechanical parameters in the specified Kerr field are determined only from stability conditions, is posed
Thermodynamics of magnetized Kerr-Newman black holes
The thermodynamics of a magnetized Kerr-Newman black hole is studied to all orders in the appended magnetic field B. The asymptotic properties of the metric and other fields are dominated by the
Regular Black Hole Metric with Three Constants of Motion
According to the no-hair theorem, astrophysical black holes are uniquely characterized by their masses and spins and are described by the Kerr metric. Several parametric spacetimes that deviate from
Geometry of isolated horizons
While the formalism of isolated horizons is known for some time, only quite recently the near horizon solution of Einstein's equations has been found in the Bondi-like coordinates by Krishnan in
Constants of motion for constrained Hamiltonian systems: A particle around a charged rotating black hole
We discuss constants of motion of a particle under an external field in a curved spacetime, taking into account the Hamiltonian constraint, which arises from the reparametrization invariance of the
Scalar, Electromagnetic and Gravitational Perturbations of Kerr-Newman Black Holes in the Slow-Rotation Limit
In Einstein-Maxwell theory, according to classic uniqueness theorems, the most general stationary black-hole solution is the axisymmetric Kerr-Newman metric, which is defined by three parameters:
Spacetime symmetry and mass of a lepton
The Einstein equations admit the class of regular solutions generated by stress-energy tensors representing vacuum with the reduced symmetry as compared with the maximally symmetric de Sitter vacuum.
