Taub-NUT vacuum


Taub-NUT vacuum

The Taub-NUT vacuum is an exact solution to Einstein's equations, a model universe formulated in the framework of general relativity that is homogeneous but anisotropic. It is based on a solution published by Abraham Haskel Taub in 1951. [A. H. Taub, Empty space-times admitting a three parameter group of motions, "Ann. Math.", 53 (1951), 472-490.]
