Should I post in Diff Geometry? I searched that forum, and did not see what I was looking for. I want to compute all 256 components of the curvature tensor. Do I start with the equation of geodesic deviation in component form, or can I go straight to the definition of the components in terms of connection coefficients? What are the first steps to embarking on this adventure?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
