Thread: Riemann Curvature Tensor View Single Post
 P: 1,431 hmmm. couple fo things: (i) what happened with my LaTeX? e.g. $R_{abc}^{d}$. how do i get the d to come after abc? (ii) to prove that $R_{abcd}=R_{cdab}$ how do i switch the ab with the cd? (iii) i dont understand your anti symmertrisation thing. surely for the n=3 case, [latex]|S_n|=3!=6 and so it should be 1/6 and then there will be 6 terms in the brackets? also how do u decide the sign of a permutation?
