Symmetric frames on Lorentzian spaces
Morales Lladosa, Juan Antonio
Symmetric frames (those whose vectors are metrically indistinguishable) are studied both, from the algebraic and differential points of view. Symmetric frames which, in addition, remain indistinguishable for a given set of concomitants of the metric are analyzed, and the necessary and sufficient conditions for a space‐time to admit them are given. A new version of the cosmological principle then follows. Natural symmetric frames (induced by local charts) are also considered, and the space‐times admitting them are obtained.
