Hello I am little bit confused about calculating Ricci tensor for schwarzschild metric:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So we have Ricci flow equation,∂_{t}g_{μν}=-2R_{μν}.

And we have metric tensor for schwarzschild metric:

Diag((1-r_{s}/r),(1-r_{s}]/r)^{-1},(r^{2}),(sin^{2}Θ) and ∂_{t}g_{μν}=0 so 0=-2R_{μν}and we get that R_{μν}=0.But R_{μν}should not equal to zero for schwarzschild metric. I may have some mistakes on symbols beacuse I use them first time.
