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

I am new to general relativity and as I would like to find out how we could derive the value of christoffel symbol in terms of the metric tensor.

I have also heard that it was given as a definition for the christoffel symbol and would like a clarification on that.
