Relativity Acceleration’s Cosmographicum and its Radar Photon Surfings – A Euclidean Diminishment of Minkowski Spacetime — •Brian Coleman — BC Systems (Erlangen)-Velchronia, Moyard, County Galway, Irland
A geometric treatment of the Gudermann function - the inverse sine of the hyperbolic tangent - uncovers a hemispherical asymptotic curve which conforms to the familiar relativistic parameters of the constant-thrust rocket. This ’hemix universe-line’ constitutes a uniformly accelerating particle’s comoving frames counterpart to the single frame world-line. String increment symmetry and assumed regularity of expansion together infer that the intersection of a hemixgenerated ’curl’ helicoid with a ’proxy’ comoving frame linear helicoid, epitomizes the stretching of a massless string joining two identical fixed-thrust rockets - Bell’s string paradox. Physically vindicated by its trajectories of photons whose radar times are analytically shown to indeed vary, the cosmographicum’s ’hemicoid universe-surface’ illustrates emitted and reflected photon/string ’surfings’, affirms the string’s expansion ratio as √1+v2/c2, elucidates a variant of the 1909 Ehrenfest rotating ring paradox, and yields a uniform acceleration metric space-time interval. Minkowski spacetime, though valid for accelerating particles, is thereby revealed as inappropriate for extended accelerating objects.
