Abstract

I will discuss a solution generating technique that allows to generate
stationary axisymmetric solutions of five-dimensional gravity, starting
from static ones. This technique can be used to add angular momentum
to static configurations. It can also be used to add KK-monopole charge
to asymptotically flat five-dimensional solutions, thus generating geometries
that interpolate between five-dimensional and four-dimensional solutions.
