I need help with differential geometry computing connection forms. Please respond!

  1. Oct 15, 2012 #1
    I need help with Part (b). I finished part (a) and attached it as well. My issue comes from how to apply the definition of connection forms to compute them. The definition states: Let E_1, E_2, E_3 be a frame field on R^3. For each tangent vector v at R^3 at the point p let [itex]\omega_{ij}[/itex](v )= [itex]\nabla_v[/itex] E_i [itex]\cdot[/itex]E_j (p), [itex](i \leq i, j \leq 3)[/itex].
