A worldline with a time-independent spectrum is called stationary. Such worldlines are arguably the most simple motions in physics. Barring the trivially static motion, the non-trivial worldlines are uniformly accelerated. As such, a point charge moving along a stationary worldline will emit constant radiative power. The angular distribution, maximum angle scaling and Thomas precession of this power is found for all stationary worldlines including those with torsion and hypertorsion.
