Funky Metric

  1. Dec 20, 2013 #1
    Hi so I was just wondering if the metric [itex]g=diag(-e^{iat},e^{ibx},e^{icy})[/itex] (where a,b,c are free parameters and t,x,y are coordinates) corresponds to a complex manifold (or is nonsensical), and what the manifold looks like?

    what do you mean by what the manifold looks like?
    well you can always compute the necessary quantities (like Riemman curvature) and see what that is. I think there exists programs in mathematica that do the job...
