I know that for normal Newtonian motion, we can write v=rω. Does this hold for relativistic motion as well? My gut tells me no, but I can't find (in my GR book or online) a comparable equation or discussion of relativistic rotation. It should be noted that while the case of relativistic motion in flat space time is interesting, ultimately I am interested in this equation in a curved space time.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
