The physical interpretation of the parameters in the generalized Kerr—Nut solution. I

Abstract

The interpretation of the parameters in the generalized Kerr-NUT solution is considered by investigating the dynamical characteristics of the field corresponding to a given solution. It is shown that the interpretation obtained of these parameters differs in some aspects from the one generally accepted, It is assumed that the reason for this is the unfortunate choice of the frame of reference utilized in obtaining the dynamical characteristics of the field.
