Schwarzschild spacetime without coordinates

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

1 Scopus citations


We discuss how to construct the full Schwarzschild (KruskalSzekeres) spacetime in one swoop by using the bundle of orthonormal Lorentz frames and the Einstein equation without the use of coordinates. We never have to write down the Kruskal-Szekeres or an equivalent form of the metric.
