- Relevant Equations:
- metric transformation

hey there :)

So I had a homework, and I was asked to diagonalize the metric ##{ds}^2=-{dt}^2+{dx}^2+2a^2(t)dxdy+{dz}^2## and to find the coordinate transformation for the coordinates of the new metric.

so I found the coordinate transformation but the lecturer said that what I found is a specific solution and not the general solution.

And he said that the function F (I attached my solution) is a function that should be dependent on the other parameter of the problem.

and I don't know how to translate this.

I started to solve it from the start but I got entangled >_<

thank you :)
