In science:

When r/M ≫ 1, the Boyer-Lindquist coordinate system clearly reduces to that of spherical spatial coordinates in flat, empty space.
General Relativistic MHD Jets
In this new system, r , θ, and t are the same as in Boyer-Lindquist coordinates, but the azimuthal position is described in terms of what would be seen by an observer following a circular orbit in the plane of the black hole’s rotation with frequency ωc = −gtφ/gφφ .
General Relativistic MHD Jets
On that surface, ∆ = 0, so grr (in Boyer-Lindquist coordinates) diverges.
General Relativistic MHD Jets
The closer to the event horizon one probes, the faster Kerr-Schild time advances relative to Boyer-Lindquist time.
General Relativistic MHD Jets
Now G = π1M is linear in the Siefert fibred case (see Theorem 8.7 for a neat proof, credited to Boyer, that G is linear over Z) and of course embeds in SL(2, C) if M is hyperbolic.
