Atlas of Coordinate Charts on de Sitter Spacetime    [PDF]

Gabriel Pascu
The de Sitter manifold admits a wide variety of interesting coordinatizations. The 'atlas' is a compilation of the coordinate charts referenced throughout the literature, and is presented in the form of tables, the starting point being the embedding in a higher-dimensional Minkowski spacetime. The metric tensor and the references where the coordinate frame is discussed or used in applications are noted. Additional information is given for the entries with significant use: a convenient tetrad and the form taken by the Killing vectors in the respective coordinate frame.
