I've been trying to calculate the Riemann Curvature Tensor for a certain manifold in 3-dimensional Euclidean Space using Christoffel Symbols of the second kind, and so far everything has gone well however...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

It is extremely tedious and takes a very long time; there is also a high probability of making silly mistakes (like misplacing a variable). Are there any faster methods (not necessarily simpler) or is there no other alternative?
