I have Christoffel symbols for a metric and I want to find the connection 1-forms.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have the relation:

w(^i j)=Chr(^i j k)*dx(^k)

w: conn. 1-form

Chr: Christoffel symbols

But Christoffel symbols do not share the symmetries of the conn. 1-forms. Do you know any way to make this possible?
