Suppose we have two bodies of equal mass m and with hyperbolic motion and with small, fixed impact parameter.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Now let's assume the speed of the two bodies in the c.o.m frame approaches c.

Is there a way - with a delta-function ansatz for the energy-momentum 4-tensor - to understand the relativistic corrections to the hyperbolic motion and to visualize the relativistic trajectories?
