I am trying to reconcile the definition of contravariant and covariant(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

components of a vector between Special Relativity and General Relativity.

In GR I understand the difference is defined by the way that the vector

components transform under a change in coordinate systems.

In SR it seems that it is more of a notational thing that allows for the

derivation of the invariant interval.

How are the 2 things related?
