Hey folks,

Does anyone know how to get the line element on a torus? The $$ds^2$$ term.

I want to find the metric for toroidal geometry.

Any help appreciated!!

Hey Nick,

Thanks, I'd already looked there and thought it was no good for what I wanted, but a second deeper looked showed that it does have the metric shown there so thanks for tip.

:)
