Schwarzschild curvature

  1. Jul 5, 2008 #1
    Say, does anyone happen to know the non-zero components of the Riemann (curvature) tensor for the Schwarzschild metric using [tex]r,\phi,\theta[/tex] and [tex]t[/tex]?

    Yes, but since there are 24 non-zero components I'll be surprised if anyone takes the time to write them out here.

    Surely you can find them somewhere using google?

    Hey Thanks, Mentz. I don't have Adobe on my computer but I'll go to the UNH library tomorrow and print it out there.

    You guys are the greatest.
