On the Differential Geometry of the Curves in Minkowski Space-Time II

Authors: Süha Yılmaz, Emin Özyılmaz, Melih Turgut


In the first part of this paper [6], a method to determine Frenet apparatus of the space-like curves in Minkowski space-time is presented. In this work, the mentioned method is developed for the time-like curves in Minkowski space-time. Additionally, an example of presented method is illustrated.
