if i have a tensor[tex]T^{uv}[/tex]...i need to calculate the covariant derivate [tex]T^u_{v;a}[/tex](adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The logical thing is to do [tex]T^u_v[/tex] and next to calculate [tex]T^u_{v;a}[/tex]

is also correct to first calculate[tex]T^{uv}_{;a}[/tex] and next [tex]T^u_{v;a}=T^{ui}_{;a}g_{iv}[/tex]???
