Taub spacetime

(early mathematics for a rotating black hole spacetime)

Taub spacetime is a spacetime model developed by Abraham Haskal Taub in the 1950s to model rotating black holes and Taub-NUT spacetime was an extension that made the model more useful. Kerr spacetime, developed in the 1960s, provided a more general and realistic model.
