so I'm taking general relativity right now and we've just gone over the covariant derivaive and the riemann tensor, however we haven't yet defined explicitly what the christoffel coefficients are except in relation to the metric tensor, I remember that there is another way of defining them explicitly however we haven't done it in class and I'm not entirely sure that we are going to, does anybody know this method?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
