The Extreme Kerr Throat Geometry: A Vacuum Analog of AdS2 × S


We study the near horizon limit of a four dimensional extreme rotating black hole. The limiting metric is a completely nonsingular vacuum solution, with an enhanced symmetry group SL(2, R)×U(1). We show that many of the properties of this solution are similar to the AdS2×S geometry arising in the near horizon limit of extreme charged black holes. In… (More)
