[tex] u^{*}(r^{*},\theta^{*},\phi^{*}) = \frac{a}{r^{*}}u(\frac{a^{2}}{r^{*}},\theta^{*},\phi^{*}) [/tex](adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex] \frac{\partial u^{*}}{\partial r^{*}}= \frac{a}{r^{*}}u_{r^{*}} \left( \frac{a^{2}}{r^{*}},\theta^{*},\phi^{*}\right) \left( -\frac{a^{2}}{r^{2*}} \right) - \frac{a}{r^{*2}} u \left( \frac{a^{2}}{r^{*}},\theta^{*},\phi^{*}\right) [/tex]

where [tex] u_{r^{*}} [/tex] is the partial of u w.r.t r*

Did I do this right? Is there a better way of representing [tex]u_{r^{*}} \left( \frac{a^{2}}{r^{*}},\theta^{*},\phi^{*}\right) [/tex]
