abstract

  • The Misner space is a simplified 2-dimensional model of the 4-dimensional Taub-NUT space that reproduces some of its pathological behaviours. In this paper we provide an explicit base of the topology of the complete Misner space ℝ¹,¹/boost. Besides we prove that some parts of this space, that behave like topological boundaries, are equivalent to the g-boundaries of the Misner space.
