Example text

It transforms inhomogeneously under a change of frame or co-ordinates. If we may take as our basis vectors the co-ordinate vectors eµ ≡ ∂µ . Then we usually use Γ instead of ω and set ∇µ eν ≡ ∇eµ eν = Γλµν eλ . 107) The numbers Γλµν are often called Christoffel symbols. Two important quantities which are tensors, are associated with ∇X : i) The torsion T (X, Y ) = ∇X Y − ∇Y X − [X, Y ]. 108) The quantity T (X, Y ) is a vector depending linearly on X, Y , so T at the point x is a map T Mx × T Mx → T Mx , and so a tensor of type (1,2).

After struggling with it in introductory courses, we rather take the concept for granted. There are some real subtleties, however. Consider an electric field. It makes sense to add two field vectors at a single point, but there is no physical meaning to the sum of the field vectors, E(x1 ) and E(x2 ), at two points separated by several meters. We should therefore regard all possible electric fields at a single point as living in a vector space, but each different point in space comes with its own vector space.

Xn ). Of course this is only a good picture if the co-ordinates are not too “curvy”. x1=2 x1=3 x1=4 x2=6 x2=5 2 1 x2=4 Approximate picture of the vectors ∂1 and ∂2 at the point (x1 , x2 ) = (2, 4). Example: The surface of the unit sphere is a manifold. It is usually denoted by S 2 . We may label its points with spherical polar coordinates θ and φ, and these will be useful everywhere except at the north and south poles, where they become singular because at θ = 0 or π all values of φ correspond to the same point.
