    Jacobean matrix

    Yes. I wasn't quite sure if there were any implications associated with covariant versus contravariant vectors in differential geometry. Also, in the case of a tensor, I wasn't sure if the transformation was the product of the Jacobean with it's inverse or transpose.

    Jacobean matrix

    I'm not sure if this belongs in physics or here. Consider the transformation of a vector from one coordinate system to the other. I can write: Vn = (∂yn/∂xm)Vm - contravariant form Vn = (∂xm/∂yn)Vm - covariant form In each case are the partials equivalent to the Jacobean matrices...
