Hello Everyone,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am just wondering what the difference in these is. Could someone please give a brief example of non-coordinate based differential geometry vs the equivalent in coordinate based, or explain the difference (whichever is easier)? Also, what advantages does one have over the other?

Thanks for your help,

Mike

Edit - Also, are there specific names for these two types of DG? Thanks again.
