If we define the Gradient of a function:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex] \uparrow u= Gra(f) [/tex]

wich is a vector then what would be the covariant derivative:

[tex] \nabla _{u}u [/tex]

where the vector u has been defined above...i know the covariant derivative is a vector but i don,t know well how to calculate it...thank you.
