Title: Global aspects of accelerating and rotating black hole space-times.
Authors: Griffiths, J.B.
Podolsky, J.
Issue Date: 2005
Abstract: The complete family of exact solutions representing accelerating and rotating black holes with possible electromagnetic charges and a NUT parameter is known in terms of a modified Pleba´nski–Demia´nski metric. This demonstrates the singularity and horizon structure of the sources but not that the complete space-time describes two causally separated black holes. To demonstrate this property, the metric is first cast in the Weyl–Lewis–Papapetrou form. After extending this up to the acceleration horizon, it is then transformed to the boost-rotation-symmetric form in which the global properties of the solution are manifest. The physical interpretation of these solutions is thus clarified.
