I am new to tetrad formalism in general relativity. I understand that [itex]e^{a}_{\mu}[/itex] is the component of a tetrad basis but what is meaning of [itex]e^{a \mu}[/itex] and how do i find it? For example, [itex]e^{a}_{\mu}[/itex] is a diagonal matrix (a,b,c,d), how do I find [itex]e^{a \mu}[/itex]? Just raise the index using metric tensor [itex]g^{\nu \mu}[/itex]?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks.
