What is the formula to evaluate a multi-integral by a change of coordinates using the squareroot of the metric instead of the determinate of the Jacobian? Thanks.
Yes, if you're going from flat-space Cartesian coordinates to an arbitrary coordinate system, the square root of the metric determinant is exactly the Jacobian's determinant.
The original Jacobian determinant from xyz to uvw should still be present--
