The GR Schwarzschild Time uses the Schwarzschild metric to show the local time at points near a black hole in comparison to the time measured by a faraway observer. It also shows sinusoidal signals emitted from nearby points as recorded by a local (shell) observer. The default configuration is three observers near a black hole.
GR Schwarzschild Time is part of a suite of Open Source Physics programs that model aspects of General Relativity. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the gr_schwarzschild_time.jar file will run the program if Java is installed. Other programs provide additional visualizations. They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or General Relativity.
