The First Law for the Lorentzian Rotating Taub-NUT

  title={The First Law for the Lorentzian Rotating Taub-NUT},
  author={Ernesto Frodden and D. Hidalgo},
We show that the first law for the rotating Taub-NUT is straightforwardly established with the surface charge method. The entropy is explicitly found as a charge and its value is not proportional to the horizon area. We conclude that there are unavoidable contributions from the Misner strings to the charges, still the mass and angular momentum gets standard values. However, there are no independent charges associated with the Misner strings.

The first law for rotating NUTs
We address a long-standing problem of describing the thermodynamics of rotating Taub--NUT solutions. The obtained first law is of full cohomogeneity and allows for asymmetric distributions of MisnerExpand
The first law of black hole thermodynamics for Taub-NUT spacetime
This article focuses on the new approach to the nature of a nut parameter $n$, usually treated as a dual charge to the mass. Instead of thinking about it as a gravitational analog of the magneticExpand
Entropy of Rotating Misner String Spacetimes
Using a boundary counterterm prescription motivated by the AdS-CFT conjecture, I evaluate the energy, entropy and angular momentum of the class of Kerr-NUT-bolt-AdS spacetimes. As in the non-rotatingExpand
Thermodynamics of Lorentzian Taub-NUT spacetimes
The thermodynamics of the Taub-NUT solution has been predominantly studied in the Euclidean sector, upon imposing the condition for the absence of Misner strings. Such thermodynamics is quiteExpand

We study aspects of the extended gravitational thermodynamics for the Taub–NUT and Taub–Bolt geometries in four dimensional locally anti-de Sitter spacetime, where the cosmological constant isExpand
Thermodynamics and phase transitions of NUTty dyons
Abstract Picking up the threads on a recent proposal [1], we show how to formulate consistent thermodynamics of Lorentzian Taub-NUT spacetimes in the presence of electric and magnetic charges.Expand
Thermodynamic volumes for AdS–Taub–NUT and AdS–Taub–Bolt

Nut Charged Space-times and Closed Timelike Curves on the Boundary
We consider higher dimensional generalizations of the four dimensional topological Taub-NUT-AdS solutions, where the angular spheres (θ,) are replaced by planes and hyperboloids. The thermodynamicsExpand
Rehabilitating space-times with NUTs
We revisit the Taub-NUT solution of the Einstein equations without time periodicity condition, showing that the Misner string is still fully transparent for geodesics. In this case, analyticExpand
NUT charge, anti-de Sitter space, and entropy
It has been proposed that spacetimes with a $U(1)$ isometry group have contributions to the entropy from Misner strings as well as from the area of $d\ensuremath{-}2$ dimensional fixed point sets. InExpand
