Penrose-Carter Diagram for a Uniformly Accelerated Observer
Semay, Claude
European Journal of Physics, v28 n5 p877-887 Sep 2007
A uniformly accelerated observer can build his proper system of coordinates in a delimited sector of the flat Minkowski spacetime. The properties of the position and time coordinate lines for such an observer are studied and compared with the coordinate lines for an inertial observer in a Penrose-Carter diagram for this spacetime.
