hi, I tried to take the covariant derivative of riemann tensor using christoffel symbols, but it is such a long equation that I have always been mixing up something. So, Could you share the entire solution, pdf file, or links with me????? ((( I know this is the long way to derive the einstein tensor and using bianchi identities shorten the way, but I really want to obtain the same solution using the long way......)))(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
