Hi, I've been unsuccesfully trying to derive the Schwartzschild solution, narrowing my mistake down to a single component of the Ricci tensor. The problem is the following(taken from Weinberg's book, with g(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); _{rr}= A , g_{tt}= -B and the angular part being the same as in spherical coordinates):

I know it must be a simple mistake, but I must have spent three hours playing around with it and I still don't see it. Could someone please calculate the R_{θθ}component step by step so that i can see where I went wrong?

Thanks in advance.
