So in these notes:

I'm trying to go from (4.28) to (4.29)
I find that the normal is
But then I need to compute these metric components. Since they are evaluated on the outer horizon which is a coordinate singularity if I use Boyer-Lindquist coordinates, I must use Kerr coordinates. However, since they are inverse metric components, and the Kerr metric is not diagonal, it looks like I have to compute the inverse matrix (at least of a 3x3 block) - writing it out, I think I need to find
Surely this isn't right - that looks horrific! |
