Covariant Derivative of a Field along a Curve

This Demonstration gives a visual representation of the covariant derivative of a field along a curve , induced by a field , where is a Peano surface with parametric equations given by the chart
.
This covariant derivative has been computed from its representation in terms of the given chart, the field and the corresponding Christoffel symbols:
,
where are the coefficients of .
