  author={Saskia Grunau and Hendrik Neumann and Stephan Reimers},
  journal={Physical Review D},
In this article we study the geodesic motion of test particles and light in the five-dimensional Myers-Perry-anti de Sitter spacetime. We derive the equations of motion and present their solutions in terms of the Weierstra{\ss} $\wp$-, $\sigma$- and $\zeta$-functions. With the help of parametric diagrams and effective potentials we analyze the geodesic motion and give a list of all possible orbit types for timelike, null and spacelike geodesics. We plot examples of the orbits and take a look at… 

Simulation of geodesic trajectory of charged BTZ black holes in massive gravity

In order to classify and understand structure of the spacetime, investigation of the geodesic motions of massive and massless particles is a key tool. So the geodesic equation is a central equation
