Maximal Kerr–de Sitter spacetimes

Jack Borthwick


In this paper, we propose a survey of the basic geometric properties of Carter’s Kerr–de Sitter solution to Einstein’s equation with cosmological constant. In particular, we give simple characterisations of the Kerr–de Sitter analogs of fast, slow and extreme Kerr spacetime and conclude with a discussion on maximal analytical extensions in each of these cases.
