Geometric interpretation of the Frenet-serret frame description of circular orbits in stationary axisymmetric spacetimes.
A geometrical interpretation is given for the Frenet-Serret structure along constant speed circular orbits in orthogonally transitive stationary axisymmetric spacetimes. This gives a simple visualization of the acceleration of these orbits and of the Fermi-Walker angular velocity of the usual symmetry-adapted frame vectors along them and provides an elegant description of the various observers characterized by critical values of the variables parametrizing the acceleration.
