# Contravariant derivative definition

 P: 45 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Define the contravariant derivative X$^{a|b}$ of X$^{a}$ with repect to x$^{b}$ 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution X$^{a|b}$= $\partial X^{a}$/$\partial x^{b}$ + $\Gamma^{ab}$$_{p}$ X$^{p}$ Does that make sense/ is it right?
