I am interested in looking at the metric where time is everywhere normal to space, so g(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); ^{ta}=0 everywhere, where t is the time coordinate and 'a' is any of the space coordinates. I'm finding it hard to look up in the literature: does it have a name that I can search for?

My main interest is in seeing which space/times can be described by it, and which (if any) can't. I think I remember that any chart can be re-expressed in this form, but I can't find that in my text books.
