Anyone know where I can, possiblely, find the EFE's written only in terms of the metric tensor and the stress-energy tensor? I know that the Ricci Curvature tensor and the Ricci scalar are derived (eventually) from the metric tensor (after a roundabout way through Christoffel symbols). The expression, I would think would be immensely long, but is there a place that has it?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
