Hey, im having trouble understanding how you can transform one set of coordinates into another using partial derivatives i just dont get the whole thought process behind it. I came across this while reading about covariant and contrivariant vectors. If anyone can help clear up how this works i would really appreciate it. Also if i need to be more specific about what i mean or if you would like to see an example of what im talking about just ask and i would be happy to post it up.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
