Hello, i don't know if my question is well posed,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

if i have a symmetric tensor S_{ij}= (∂_{i}x_{j}+ ∂_{j}x_{i}) / 2

with x_{i}cartesian coordinates, how can i transform it in a spherical coordinates system (ρ,θ,[itex]\varphi[/itex])?

(I need it for the calculus of shear stress tensor in spherical coordinate in fluid dynamics)
