Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've been trying for a while to calculate the paths of massless particles around a Schwarzschild black hole, and basically I've failed, but I really need the answer for writing a simulator.

Knowing the initial conditions of the particles, I need to know the equations for:

[itex]r(\lambda)[/itex]

[itex]\theta(\lambda)[/itex]

[itex]\phi(\lambda)[/itex]

[itex]t(\lambda)[/itex]

or equations that I can integrate easily.
