"Rotating spacetimes with a cosmological constant"

We will present solution generating methods in Einstein gravity for stationary metrics with axial symmetry in the presence of a cosmological constant. We will relate our findings to the classic works of Papapetrou and Ernst in 4 dimensional general relativity, and we will extend them for a cosmological constant and in higher dimensions than four. We will discuss higher dimensional black hole solutions such as the black ring, their Kaluza-Klein reduction and other construction methods relating lower to higher dimensional spacetimes.
