Summary: We review some interesting results obtained through the Newman-Janis algorithm, a solution generating technique employed in General Relativity. We also describe the use of this algorithm in different theories, namely \(f(R)\), Einstein-Maxwell-Dilaton gravity, Braneworld, Born-Infeld monopole and we focus on the validity of the results.
