I need to do a calculation in ingoing Kerr coordinates. I have $g_{\mu\nu}$ from which $g^{\mu\nu}$ can be obtained by hand. However there are so many terms and the final result is not in good form. So is there any reference where $g^{\mu\nu}$ is given ?

  • $\begingroup$ Landau Vol.2 6th edition, expression 104.6 gives the inverse Kerr metric. $\endgroup$ – DelCrosB Oct 14 '16 at 10:06
  • $\begingroup$ But it is in Boyer-Lindquist coordinates. I am looking for the inverse metric in $\textit{Ingoing Kerr coordinates}$. $\endgroup$ – Prof Shonku Oct 14 '16 at 10:14
