Abstract

If geodesics in space-time can be classified as timelike, null, and spacelike, the affine connection must be of the form Γjk i = {jki}+2giaejka- (δjiδkakiδja-g jkg ia)d a, with d a, an arbitrary vector and e ijk a tensor satisfying e(ijk)=e[ij]k=0. It is possible to generalize Fermi's law of transport to this affine connection. The requirement that any observer be able to construct and maintain a nonrotating orthogonal space triad along his world line by the bouncing photon experiment implies the Weyl's geometry of paths.
