Title: Could a pseudosphere be an adequate representation of a black hole?
Post by: petelamana on 16/02/2018 13:12:05
Eugenio Beltrami proved that a pseudosphere has properties inherent in a segment of a Lobachevskian/hyperbolic plane.  See below for the construction of a pseudosphere.

The geometric properties of a pseudosphere are easily seen.  My question is simple.  If the pseudosphere is rotated about the shorter perpendicular line, could this be a good "jumping off" point for further study of post-accretion disk geometry?  I am curious about such geometries, and am wondering if further study of hyperbolic space may be a starting point for me.
