Calculating the Christoffel symbol

  1. Jun 3, 2015 #1
    Friends,

    I wish indicate to me a text book that teaches you calculate in detail the symbol of Christoffel (undergraduate or graduate level in physics).

    Thank You for your help!!!

    Kk, thank you... but I even searched for books, and I think the following book is a good suggestion for consultation:

    Einstein's Theory: A Rigorous Introduction for the Mathematically Untrained
    by Øyvind Grøn, Arne Næss

    few authors solve exercises related to Christoffel Symbols ... I think it's out of laziness !


    Best regards.

    thank you.

    I think one of our regular posters (bcrowell???) has a treatise on GR in which he solves for the Christoffel symbols.
