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.

Reference Frames and Rigid Motions in Relativity: Applications

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,

Time dependence of c and its concomitants

As we showed in a preceding arXiv:gr-qc Einstein equations, conveniently written, provide the more orthodox and simple description of cosmological models with a time dependent speed of light $c$. We

Space and Time models

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.

Light Tides and the Kennedy-Thorndike experiments

We model the system Earth-Moon-Sun from the point of view of a frame of reference co-moving with the Earth and we derive a detailed prediction of the outcome of future Kennedy-Thorndike's type
