Does it make sense for the Ricci Scalar to be a function of the spacetime coordinates?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In previous calculations I have carried out in the past, everytime the Ricci Scalar has been returned as a constant, rather than being explicitly dependent on the coordinates.

Thanks for any replies
