ABSTRACT We construct new solutions of the vacuum Einstein field equations with cosmological constant. These solutions describe spacetimes with non-trivial topology that are asymptotically dS, AdS or flat. For a negative cosmological constant these solutions are NUT charged generalizations of the topological black hole solutions in higher dimensions. We also point out the existence of such NUT charged spacetimes in odd dimensions and we explicitly construct such spaces in 5 and 7 dimensions. The existence of such spacetimes with non-trivial topology is closely related to the existence of the cosmological constant. Finally, we discuss the global structure of such solutions and possible applications in string theory. Comment: latex, 30 pages, added references

    ABSTRACT: We construct new charged solutions of the Einstein Maxwell field equations with cosmological constant. These solutions describe the nut-charged generalisation of the higher-dimensional Reissner Nordström spacetimes. For a negative cosmological constant these solutions are the charged generalizations of the topological nut-charged black hole solutions in higher dimensions. Finally, we discuss the global structure of such solutions and possible applications.

    ABSTRACT: We consider a finite action for a higher dimensional Taub–NUT/Bolt–(A)dS space via the so-called counter term subtraction method. In the limit of high temperature, we show that the Cardy–Verlinde formula holds for the Taub–Bolt–AdS metric and for the specific dimensional Taub–NUT–(A)dS metric, except for the Taub–Bolt–dS metric.

    ABSTRACT: I show that there are no SU(2)-invariant (time-dependent) tensorial perturbations of Lorentzian Taub NUT space. It follows that the spacetime is unstable at the linear level against generic perturbations. The difficulty of formulating a physically reasonable thermodynamics for Taub NUT space is discussed.
