In differential geometry, a geodesic is a curve representing in some sense the shortest path between two points in a surface.
Geodesic(body, end_lambda, step_size=0.001, time=<Quantity 0. s>, metric=<class 'einsteinpy.metric.schwarzschild.Schwarzschild'>)¶
Class for defining geodesics of different geometries.
body (Body) – Test particle for which geodesics is to be calculated.
end_lambda (float) – Lambda(proper time in seconds) where iterations will stop
step_size (float, optional) – Size of each increment in proper time. Defaults to
time (s, optional) – Time of start, Defaults to 0 seconds.
