# Frames of Reference and Some of its Applications

@article{Bel1998FramesOR, title={Frames of Reference and Some of its Applications}, author={Ll. Bel}, journal={arXiv: General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology}, year={1998} }

We define a Frame of reference as a two ingredients concept: A meta-rigid motion, which is a generalization of a Born motion, and a chorodesic synchronization, which is an adapted foliation. At the end of the line we uncover a low-level 3-dimensional geometry with constant curvature and a corresponding coordinated proper-time scale. We discuss all these aspects both from the geometrical point of view as from the point of view of some of the physical applications derived from them.

The concept of rigid reference frame and of constricted spatial metric, given in the previous work [Class. Quantum Grav. 21, 3067 (2004)] are here applied to some specific space-times: in particular,…

We derive line-element's templates of space-time models with Space models complying with Helmholtz's Free mobility postulate, and discuss some of the Time models compatible with them.
