Homework Statement:
how many christoffel symbols (independent) can exist for a diagonal metric? what about the general metric?
Relevant Equations:
general metric(4d) and diagonal 4*4 metric
Actually I know there would be some permutations used here. I know how to calculate the symbols but estimating is quite a new thing to me

There is a LaTeX Guide link at the lower left of the Edit window, as shown below. Click on that to learn the basics of LaTeX so that you can type your math equations into the forum. That makes it better for everybody, since it is easy for us to read and quote. Thank you.
