Example of curvature scalar diverging at infinity?

  1. Nov 12, 2015 #1
    Reading Geroch's "What is a Singularity in General Relativity?", it seems that polynomial scalar invariants constructed from the Riemann tensor can diverge if we are at infinite distance, and not in a true singularity.

    Can someone give an example of space-time whose scalar invariant diverges at infinity?
