So I was wondering, is the variation of the Minkowski Metric zero? As in ##{\delta}{\eta}_{\mu\nu}=0## . I would think this is the case because the components of the Minkowski Metric are just numbers (either +1 or -1), so varying it gives you 0. Is this correct?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
