Suppose we do a constant Jacobian transformation (which is not Lorentz) of a SR (inertial)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

frame, by using four linear change of variables equations. This defines an apparent field with a

constant metric (which is not the SR metric) in which there is relative acceleration of separation.

From the geodesic - metric equation we see that the acceleration vector depends on the first

partial derivatives of this constant metric and so at least some of these derivatives must be

non-zero. How can this be true??????

Can anyone shed light on this puzzle?
