Covariant Derivative of a Field along a Curve
Requires a Wolfram Notebook System
Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.
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[more]
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 .[less]
