I need to transform cartesian coordinates to spherical ones for Minkowski metric.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Taking:

(x0, x1, x2, x3) = (t, r, α, β)

And than write down all Christoffel symbols for it.

I really have no clue, but from other examples i've seen i should use chain rule in first and symmetry of Christoffel symbol Tab=Tba
