Integration of the geodesic equations via Noether symmetries
International Journal of Modern Physics D
Through this paper, I will overview the use of Noether symmetry approach in discussing the integration of geodesic equations for the geodesic Lagrangians of spacetimes. I will also give some examples to reveal the efficiency of Noether symmetry approach by finding the first integrals related for the geodesic Lagrangians of the Gödel-type, Schwarzschild, Reïssner-Nordström and Kerr spacetimes. After obtaining the approximate Noether symmetries of the Schwarzschild, Reïssner-Nordström and Kerr spacetimes, the first integrals associated with each of approximate Noether symmetries have been integrated to find a general solution of geodesic equations in terms of the arc length s.
