Taub-NUT spacetime

(early mathematics for a rotating black hole spacetime)

Taub-NUT spacetime is a spacetime model developed by Ezra T. Newman, Louis A. Tamburino, and Theodore W. J. Unti (whose initials are N, U, and T) in the early 1960s extending Taub spacetime by handling more situations mathematically. Kerr spacetime provided a more general and realistic model.
