# Spinning C metric: Radiative spacetime with accelerating, rotating black holes

@article{Bik1999SpinningCM, title={Spinning C metric: Radiative spacetime with accelerating, rotating black holes}, author={Jiřı́ Bi{\vc}{\'a}k and Vojtvech Pravda}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={1999}, volume={60}, pages={044004} }

The spinning C-metric was discovered by Plebanski and Demianski as a generalization of the standard C-metric which is known to represent uniformly accelerated non-rotating black holes. We first transform the spinning C-metric into Weyl coordinates and analyze some of its properties as Killing vectors and curvature invariants. A transformation is then found which brings the metric into the canonical form of the radiative spacetimes with the boost-rotation symmetry. By analytically continuing the… Expand
