Circular holonomy in the Taub-NUT spacetime.

Parallel transport around closed circular orbits in the equatorial plane of the Taub-NUT spacetime is analysed to reveal the effect of the gravitomagnetic monopole parameter on circular holonomy transformations. Investigating the boost/rotation decomposition of the connection 1-form matrix evaluated along these orbits, one finds a situation that reflects the behaviour of the general orthogonally transitive stationary axisymmetric case and indeed along Killing trajectories in general.
