# The First Law for the Lorentzian Rotating Taub-NUT

@inproceedings{Frodden2021TheFL, title={The First Law for the Lorentzian Rotating Taub-NUT}, author={Ernesto Frodden and D. Hidalgo}, year={2021} }

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.

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-rotating… Expand

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. In… Expand
