Abstract [en]

Studying general relativity, with spacetime as a curved four-dimensional pseudo-Riemannian

space, much of ones physical intuition is lost. Furthermore, there no longer exists

any canonical way to visualise this space, in which all other physics take place. In this

paper, different representations of the Schwarzschild solution are studied, in an attempt

to build up an intuitive understanding of the behaviour of test particles in the vicinity

of a spherically symmetric and stationary source of gravity, such as a black hole. Three

representations of the Schwarzschild solution will be studied; the original Schwarzschild

representation, as well as the Fronsdal embedding and Kruskal-Szekeres transform.
