# Misner space - closed timelike curves

Could someone give me a good resource to read about closed timelike curves in Misner space? Somewhere where they are actually derived and some comments are made for the simple 2D Misner space?

• You could start with lecture by K. Thorne: inspirehep.net/record/348406 – A.V.S. Apr 4 at 19:28
• Seen this, I want explicitly Misner space! – Feynstein Apr 4 at 21:01
• Explicitly Misner space serves as an explicit example in this lecture. If you still have questions after working through the lecture, maybe you should ask a more specific question. – A.V.S. Apr 4 at 21:16
• I have asked in the question, " Somewhere where they actually derived. ..." – Feynstein Apr 4 at 21:26
• What do you mean by “derived”? When you identify a point $A$ of Minkowski space with another point $A'$ that is in the absolute past of $A$, then any timelike curve from $A'$ to $A$ becomes a CTC. What else do you need? – A.V.S. Apr 4 at 21:30
