    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Hi, I'm working on understanding how a time independent point transformation gif.gif . effects the Lagrangian and to see how what values are co and contra variant.


    2. Relevant equations
    Would these be correct formulations, or have I overlooked something?

    3. The attempt at a solution
