The volume form on a Riemannian manifold is usually defined either in terms of a local holonomic frame or orthonormal frame. Since it's defined globally, I would like there to be a global definition, like there is with symplectic manifolds (vol = ω(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); ^{n}). Is there one?
