T[itex]^{jk}[/itex] = [itex]\frac{1}{\sqrt{g}}[/itex][itex]\frac{\partial}{\partial x^{i}}[/itex] ([itex]\sqrt{g}[/itex]B[itex]^{ijk}[/itex])(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Given B[itex]^{ijk}[/itex] is a tensor

Find if T[itex]^{jk}[/itex] is a tensor and explain why and if not what can be done to

B[itex]^{ijk}[/itex] to make T[itex]^{jk}[/itex] a tensor ?

I tried to solve this but i think i'am missing some rules !!!

I think T[itex]^{jk}[/itex] looks like a div of B = B[itex]^{ijk}[/itex],i

i tried to substitute B[itex]^{ijk}[/itex],i with the derivative but i end up with a big quantity with christoffel symbols

any help plz!!
