In Misner, Thorne, Wheeler: "Gravitation" it is stated on that "no one has discovered a way to make an imaginary coordinate work in the general curved spacetime manifold" (p.51). Can anyone elaborate on this? Right now, I don't get why it wouldn't work and nothing more is said in the book.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
